ABC air “Taking the Stage: African American Music and Stories that Changed America,” an all-star celebration of the Smithsonian’s new National Museum of African American History and Culture.

Ahead of the special that features performances from Mary J. Blige, Jamie Foxx and Usher, legendary music producer Quincy Jones says tonight’s program will cover some of the greatest music contributions that African Americans have made throughout the years.

“It goes straight through the ages,” Jones told ABC News. “Stuff from the ’30s, ’40s, ’50s, ’60s; be-bop, doo-wop, hip-hop, big bands; everything. It covers the history.”

Executive producer of “Taking the Stage,” Don Mischer, concurred and added that the contribution African Americans have made to pop culture is “unparalleled.”
