A God Among Men and A True Workhorse!
13 October 2018 | by chriscarlisle25See all my reviews

Quincy Jones is a god among men, and has done so much for not only the Black experience, music experience, film experience, and American experience, but the world experience! This documentary informed me very well of who this man is, and all of his amazing achievements! He is so interwoven into the fabric of almost everything in the entertainment industry that it is crazy! He got so many people started including but not limited to: Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith! Mr Jones has done so much for Black people and just people everywhere by simply doing what he does best! He is a workhorse who doesn't stop until his tasks are done, and he has taken on so many tasks that most of us would deem impossible. The man is over 80 years of age and still travelling the world and setting up earth shattering events! This man has truly done it all! Please do yourself a favor and watch this highly attention encapsulating and awesome documentary that not only informs you of the history behind the man, but also takes you on an interesting journey through American history; especially that of the African American and entertainment industry.
