Not many people have had the impact of Black musical legend and producer Quincy Jones.
With a legendary career spanning more than six decades — and who was responsible for hits from legendary musical acts from Michael Jackson to Frank Sinatra — he has been nominated for seven Academy Awards. According to CNN, Quincy Jones has also received 80 Grammy nominations, with 28 wins, and a Grammy Legend Award win in 1992.
It’s no surprise that with all these accolades, Jones has achieved a massive net worth of $500 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
But that’s the least he deserves, frankly.
Not bad for a former jazz musician!
But more than just his musical and production accomplishments, Quincy Jones has a legacy that will last a lifetime. His seven children are his pride and joy — and they’ve almost all gone into the business themselves. In fact, though, their careers are so respectable that they stand apart from their legendary father, while also honoring his legacy.
Let’s take a look at how they’re doing just that.
