“It’s an honor to be able to celebrate my 90th year on this planet with all-a-y’awl at the Hollywood Bowl, with some of my most treasured friends, musicians and songs,” Quincy Jones said in a statement. “Thank-Q for keeping the music playing with and for me, and I can’t wait to see you all there!”
The artists will perform some of the best-selling songs of all time, from one of the industry’s best-selling producers.
Among the hits in the lineup are Michael Jackson’s “P.Y.T.” and “Thriller,” singer-songwriter Grace’s remake of “You Don’t Own Me,” and “Soul Bossa Nova” from Q himself, which was used as the theme song in the Austin Powers movie franchise.
Jones was born on the South Side of Chicago on March 14, 1933.
With a career spanning over seven decades, he produced and conducted the “We Are the World” recording, which is the best-selling single of all time. Jones also produced Michael Jackson’s albums Off the Wall, Bad and Thriller, which is the best-selling album of all time, with over 100 million copies sold worldwide.
Jones’ work earned him a record-breaking 80 Grammy Award nominations, with a total of 28 wins, cementing his status as one of the most decorated music artists in history, according to Grammy.com.
Jones also earned seven Oscar nominations and four Emmy nominations, resulting in one Emmy win. He received an honorary Oscar in 1994 and won a Tony Award for The Color Purple in 2016, giving him honorary EGOT status.
Jones is currently working as a producer, along with Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg, on the upcoming movie musical The Color Purple.
