Synopsis: Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film 20 FEET FROM STARDOM, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others. These gifted artists span a range of styles, genres and eras of popular music, but each has a uniquely fascinating and personal story to share of life spent in the shadows of super-stardom. Along with rare archival footage and a peerless soundtrack, 20 FEET FROM STARDOM boasts intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting to name just a few. However, these world-famous figures take a backseat to the diverse array of backup singers whose lives and stories take center stage in the film.

    I really enjoyed this movie. The vocal talents of these women is incredible. The movie was an eye opening experience and has me hoping that the careers of these women might get a further boost from this movie.
    It was also nice to meet some new people tonight have talk about movies.

    I really liked this documentary. Learned a lot about what was kept from the public as well as the good and bad times in the music arena during the 60's. So many comments reminded me of the dreams I have given up on that I left in a very reflective mood. I highly recommend seeing 20 Feet From Stardom.
