Quincy’s musical contributions & story are so inspiring!

It’s obvious to see the love that went into the making of this documentary. Truly had no idea what a Quincy fan I already was until watching this Netflix documentary. The only disappointment was that it’s not a series with more to watch, learn, and listen to. What an incredible talent. Also great to see was the love from all his family, including ex-wives, children, etc., Just like all of us, he’s an imperfect individual. However he was willing to let us all see inside his history through the camera lens and his daughter Rashida following him around, even into a hospital room. Have watched it twice and will watch it again. Thank you to the Jones family!!
