The concert at Radio City Music Hall also featured performances from Jennifer Hudson, Earth Wind & Fire, Barry Manilow, Carly Simon and Dionne Warwick.

But for the most part, the movie offers a warm and rosy picture of the longtime head of Columbia and Arista records, who is portrayed as a devoted music fan, a dedicated family man, a savvy business person and a trusted guardian angel for artists. Even Kenny G, master of mom jazz himself, turns up to extol the "Man With the Golden Ears", the sobriquet Davis' talent-spotting prowess has earned him.

Franklin spoke briefly about her long working relationship with Davis, saying, "What a wonderful, caring, caring humanitarian". "I had no money after my parents died, so I went through school on scholarships". "But I wasn't going to miss this evening". Davis has influenced many important music artists over the course of his career, including Whitney Houston, Barry Manilow, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, Santana, Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, and more.
