Sony Pictures Classics has picked up North American rights to the R&B star-studded rockumentary “Soul Power,” which features performances from James Brown, B.B. King, Bill Withers and others at the historic “Zaire ’74” concert in Africa.

 

       The 12-hour, three-night long event was held alongside the legendary “Rumble in the Jungle” between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, a bout detailed in the Oscar-winning documentary “When We Were Kings.”      

       Sony Classics also picked up Latin American rights to “Soul Power,” which premiered this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
