Chaka Khan to perform at Toronto film festival’s ‘Quincy’ premiere


TORONTO — A performance by Chaka Khan, Mark Ronson and singer Yebba Smith has been added to the world premiere of a new Quincy Jones documentary at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The film’s publicist says the trio will perform one original song from the film immediately after Sunday’s afternoon screening at the Princess of Wales Theatre.

The mini-concert will be part of a post-screening event that’s also set to include a Q&A with Jones himself, and co-directors Rashida Jones and Alan Hicks.

“Quincy” is billed as an intimate look into the life of the legendary composer, arranger and producer.

“Quincy” launches on Netflix on Sept. 21.
