The world premiere of "Clive Davis: The Soundtrack to Our Lives" a documentary honoring the impact the renowned music exec has had on the industry through the eyes of Davis himself and those who've worked with him over the last 50 years was followed by a star-studded concert at New York City's Radio City Music Hall.

If you thought you had a pretty good idea of who Davis is and what he's done for music, the documentary makes you realize there's so much more to him than the artists he's discovered and built -- which includes Whitney Houston, Barry Manilow, Alicia Keys, Janis Joplin, Dionne Warwick and countless other superstars. It's a story of turning unexpected happenings into untouchable success, all while depicting the heart and passion that is Mr. Davis. As Babyface put it in the film, "He's a music man and that's what he lives for."

The names that gathered to honor Davis at a post-screening concert was indicative of the impact he's had on music: Barry Manilow, Jennifer Hudson, Earth, Wind & Fire, Dionne Warwick, Carly Simon and Aretha Franklin.
