|Get on Up: On route to the stage, singer James Brown recalls a life with a turbulent childhood where music was his only constructive release for his passions. A chance
demonstration of that in prison led to a new friend who helped get him out and into a musical career. With his fire and creative daring, Brown became a star who defiantly
created new possibilities in show business both on and behind the stage in face of racism and conventional thinking. Along the way, James would also become a
peacemaker who redefined and raised the African-American community's feeling of self-worth when it was needed most.
