After the screening, those in attendance were treated to a concert featuring many of Davis' mentees. The 2017 version of the event featured appearances from Lorde, John Legend, Lena Dunham, Neil Diamond, Jennifer Hudson, Nancy Pelosi, Gene Simmons, Jon Voight, and Diplo.
The Tribeca Film Festival kicked off Wednesday with a star-studded salute to Clive Davis at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Despite not being in the best of health, the 75-year-old Franklin was determined to pay tribute to Davis - who signed her to his Arista label in 1980, helping reinvigorate her career - as part of a post-screening live performance. Other artists that Davis helped discover throughout his illustrious career include Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Santana, Patti Smith, Alicia Keys, and Sean "Puffy" Combs. Davis earned a loud cheer from the audience when he started dancing.
The first night of the film festival was a time to celebrate music and the arts and also honor the person Aretha Franklin called "the greatest record man of all-time".
Still, "Soundtrack" is an endearing portrait of a man who came from humble working-class roots, not to mention a whirlwind tour through 50 years of musical history.
