    I only saw the last 15 minutes. I thought there would be a lot more interest on here than there is. Anyone else see it?

    Smokey and Stevie were on.

    I thought it was great and very informative. I highly recommend it. There were commentaries from Smokey, Stevie, Duke, David Ritz, Shelia E, Spike Lee and others. I didn't know that Shelia E played percussion on Marvin's last tour. But what interested me more was seeing Marvin perform some of the songs from the album live from the Black Expo concert footage film Save The Children. I wish they would re-release the entire film on Netflix because his performance, sitting down and playing the piano was absolutely amazing.

    I saw this CNN show. Interesting but nothing really to shout about. Worth Watching.

    I saw Sheila E and David Ritz as well as Smokey and Stevie; I thought it was interesting but most of what was being talked about and said is kind of old news to the people of this Forum.

    I was surprised about Sheila E playing percussion on his last tour.

    I regret I forgot about it; I'm going to see if CNN has the program available on-the-line.

    Did any other forum members get tickets to the "What's Going On" 50th anniversary event on May 21st at the Motown Museum? I will be on the 2 pm tour and it sounds like a neat event. I'm curious to find out who the "in person alumni appearances" will be!

    I caught the CNN Special on What's Going On and I enjoyed every minute of it! Besides the interviews with Smokey & Stevie, they had Spike Lee, Sheila E., Funk Brother Jack Ashford, Critic Nelson George & Marvin's Sister Zeola Gay on the show.

    Grammy winner Jack Ashford — who, at 86, is one of the only surviving members of Motown’s famed house band The Funk Brothers — is a key figure in “What’s Going On: Marvin Gaye’s Anthem for the Ages,” which premiered May 9 on CNN and is available to stream and will be rebroadcast tonight on CNN at 11 pm.

    Just found this interesting article about him and the documentary.
