Clive Davis Documentary Coming Exclusively to Apple Music

"Mr. Davis, for so many years it's been a real pleasure".

The Queen of Soul was on hand to honor the music mogul at the world premiere of the new documentary "Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives", which opened this year's Tribeca Film Festival.

The occasion was the opening of the 16th Tribeca Film Festival, which this year was celebrating the celebrated record executive Clive Davis. "He turned Barry Manilow into a top-selling recording artist and helped resurrect the careers of both Warwick and Franklin, the latter of whom closed the impromptu tribute concert with two songs, "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" and "Freeway of Love". He went on to discover artists such as Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys, and he also played an essential role in shaping the careers of artists like Bruce Springsteen, Barbara Streisand, Barry Manilow, Carlos Santana, Patti Smith, Kenny G and so much more.

"I'm fighting an upper respiratory viral infection and shortness of breath, so forgive me if I miss a few notes", the soul diva told a packed house at Radio City Music Hall Wednesday. Davis earned a loud cheer from the audience when he started dancing.

Jennifer Hudson left the stage to walk into the aisles to dance with the crowd as she sang Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody". "So I want to take this time to remember her in the sweetest way".

The weirdest moment of the night came from Carly Simon, who melded her 1986 hit "Coming Around Again" with an extended version of the nursery rhyme "Itsy Bitsy Spider", backed with a group of children.

"He's sort of our mentor and the person that we look to, not only musically, but Clive also, I think, has a very big heart when it comes to social activities and social principles and he always supports the best - not only in his artists, but also in the culture", she said.

The remaining members of Earth, Wind & Fire turned up, backed by Kenny G and offering hits like "September".

Franklin spoke briefly about her long working relationship with Davis, saying, "What a wonderful, caring, caring humanitarian".

Davis became president of Columbia Records at the age of 35.
