As it continues to ramp up its focus on content, Apple has reportedly acquired the rights to the documentary "Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives". Although the film does not necessarily delve too deeply into Davis' personal life, we do hear from several of his children, and it does touch on Davis' bisexuality, which he spoke about publicly in 2013. So when Hudson, who opened with "Hallelujah" as a tribute to the late Leonard Cohen, began a medley of songs to honor Houston, the crowd went wild, especially when she walked into the audience to dance with Davis during "I Wanna Dance With Somebody". The acquisition was announced just before the film's premiere kicked off the first night of the Tribeca Film Festival. 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.
