Past winners of the Entertainment Lions for Music

JAY-Z "Smile"

2018 · Roc Nation for RocNation


Director Miles Jay wanted to tell Gloria’s story, raising her kids in the Marcy Projects in the 1970’s. Gloria’s heart was torn between being a mother and embracing her sexual identity. Ultimately, she made a sacrifice to choose her family over her sexual preference to raise her children. Through this story we realize how Gloria’s struggle with her sexuality inadvertently showed Jay how to go through adversity with a smile.
