KENNY G MAKES GUEST APPEARANCE AT CLIVE DAVIS: THE SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES PREMIERE AND ALL-STAR CONCERT IN NYC

Performs “The Way You Move” with Earth, Wind & Fire

NEW YORK, NY (April 21, 2017) When Kenny G got the call from music industry icon Clive Davis asking him to perform at an All-Star concert, which coincided with the debut of his documentary Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives at the Tribeca Film Festival, Kenny G knew he had to drop everything and attend. Not only did he attend, but he also delivered a show-stopping performance of “The Way You Move” along with Earth, Wind & Fire that left the crowd dancing in the aisles.

"I'm so proud and honored to be able to pay tribute to the man who is responsible for all the success I've had – Mr. Clive Davis,” Kenny G stated. “Being part of the lineup that includes Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind & Fire, Barry Manilow, Carly Simon, Dionne Warwick, and Jennifer Hudson is truly a highlight for me and my career." Whoopi Goldberg hosted the celebration.

Next month, Kenny is teaming up with world renowned jazz superstar George Benson for a historic co-headline touring event where each will perform songs from their career defining album plus greatest hits. It’s been 40 years since Jazz visionary George Benson released the groundbreaking Grammy Award winning album Breezin’, selling over 3 million albums and topping the Jazz, R&B and Pop Billboard charts. It’s been 25 years since Kenny G, the most celebrated instrumental musician of the modern era with his signature Jazz sound, debuted the Grammy Award winning album Breathless, selling over 12 million copies in the United States alone.

George Benson and Kenny G combined have sold over 125 million albums worldwide, earned 11 Grammy Awards, and have recorded a staggering 15 #1 albums and 10 #1 singles. The pair will embark on one of the most highly anticipated tours of the year, The Breezin’ & Breathless Tour.
