Black Hollywood, in all of our beautiful melanin glory, came out to honor the legend Quincy Jones earlier this week.
The music icon, who is celebrating his 85th birthday this year, has a highly anticipated new BET special airing soon. It’s called Q85: A Musical Celebration For Quincy Jones, which honored the life and legacy of the Grammy Award-winning producer.
Singers such as Yolanda Adams, John Legend, Jennifer Hudson, Charlie Wilson, Cynthia Erivo, Ledisi and Fantasia all graced the stage. Jones’ daughter, actress Rashida Jones, also joined in on the celebration.
The celebration was taped on Tuesday night at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre LA Live. Stay tuned on when BET will air Q85.
