The film will also look into the mentorship relationships Quincy formed over the years with fellow musicians and members of the entertainment industry such as Lesley Gore, Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey and Will Smith.
Lisa Nishimura, Vice President of the original documentaries for Netflix, said: “t’s a rare opportunity to be able to present the definitive story of someone who has for over seven decades, not just influenced, but altered the course of culture.”
