According to reports, music fans will soon get to see James Brown’s life unfold on their screens in an upcoming A&E network four-part documentary. The documentary entitled “James Brown: Say It Loud” has some big names attached to the project and will be produced by Rolling Stones member Mick Jagger and Questlove and Black Thought from The Roots.
