Documentary delves into life of music pioneer Clive Davis

Jennifer Hudson steps out to support music producer Clive Davis at the premiere of Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives on Wednesday night (April 19) during opening night of the Tribeca Film Festival at Radio City Music Hall in NYC.

The streaming music platform, which over the past year has branched out into producing and buying original video programming, has landed Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives from IM Global and Scott Free Productions.

The film is directed by Chris Perkel and based on Davis' 2013 autobiography.

The 2017 Tribeca Film Festival will also provide an unprecedented experience for movie lovers near its end: the back-to-back screening of The Godfather and The Godfather Part II, followed by a cast reunion that includes the conversation with director Francis Coppola and several actors to mark the 45th anniversary of the classic series' theatrical release. He signed Donovan, who became a folk-rock star through Columbia's Epic label, early on in his career. Davis has signed, influenced and driven the careers of numerous most important music artists of the 20th and 21st Centuries including Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Santana, Aretha Franklin, Barry Manilow, Patti Smith, Alicia Keys, Sean "Puffy" Combs, and a great many more who attest to Davis as, in Aretha Franklin's words, "the greatest record man of all time".

He went on to play a key role in the careers of Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Santana, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Aerosmith, Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin, Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, the Kinks, the Grateful Dead and the Eurythmics.

At the current time, Davis is the chief creative officer at Sony Music Entertainment.

The 85-year-old says it was a dream come true to launch "Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives" at Radio City Music Hall since he grew up in Brooklyn and didn't visit Manhattan until he was 13.

The deal was negotiated by WME Global and Craig Emmanuel of Loeb & Loeb on behalf of the filmmakers and general counsel Zipser on behalf of IM Global.
