I am really happy to have just discovered that Iconic Grace Jones is being honored with a project backed by BBC Films.
Grace is now considered the 15th best diva ever according to our poll.
According to Billboard:
James Wilson and Katie Holly are co-producing the film, the first-ever on Jones. It has been described as “a cinematic journey into the private and public worlds of Grace Jones, mixing intimate personal footage with unique staged musical sequences.”
A former model who became a new wave sensation in the 1980s with hits such as “Pull Up to the Bumper,” “Slave to the Rhythm” and “Private Life,” she has long been seen as a musical and fashion influence on scores of female singers. Jones stopped recording with 1989’s Bulletproof Heart, returning in 2008 with Hurricane. She contributed the track “Original Beast” to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 soundtrack last year.
In my opinion, this tribute hould have been done several years ago. Grace is a cult icon and part of our culture.
