On Monday, we had the pleasure of attending the red carpet for the premiere of the James Brown biopic Get On Up. We got to speak to the Brown family, including James’ daughter, his grandson and youngest son. The youngest son, James Joseph Brown II, 13, recalled his fondest memory with his father, his grandson spoke about helping Chadwick learn the moves and mannerisms and then his daughter, DeAnna spoke about the cultural and historical impact her father had on music.

She said, “We want them to understand the struggle and how hard it was for the Godfather of Soul to make it. It wasn’t easy.”

Check out our interviews in the video above.

    What happened to Kel? I got used to seeing hotness or hot mess. I hope he’s still working with this site or working period. Kel, you’re missed …again. Hope to see you soon. You’re an awesome childhood memory of mine that proves to be consistent in your seemingly effortless humor and contagious light hearted personality. Hope everything’s alright.

    I loved the movie. I saw a pre – screening of it and it was fantastic. Chadwick did his thing. He might get nominated for an Academy award for his performance. Great story, great music, and very informative. This is a must see movie.

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    Looking forward to the movie. He was an excellent performer whose influence in music is still heard today. The music I heard on a commercial recently was very James Brownesque. He deserves to be remembered for his contribution to music and dance.

    Uhm…he was a woman beater. That’s what I learned about him.
