How Grace Jones became a powerful pop star

Grace Jones knows how to keep an audience. She’s said, “If the lights should go out, if the roof, the electricity, the sound fails, I can still perform and hold the audience -- in the dark, without any trimmings.” The new documentary, “Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami,” includes footage from her concerts and intimate scenes with her family in Jamaica.
