20 Feet From Stardom - MCC Movies on Main

The backup singer exists in a strange place in the pop music world; they are always in the shadow of the feature artists even when they are in front of them in concert while they provide a vital foundation for the music. Through interviews with veterans and concert footage, the history of these predominately African-American singers is explored through the rock era. Darlene Love. 91 mins. Documentary. Rated PG-13

    Thanks to everyone who attended Friday's film. I forgot to mention that Mick Jagger is reportedly trying to get 20 Feet from Stardom turned into a one hour television series featuring current back-up singers. He is also trying to get it produced as a Broadway musical with Darlene Love and Lisa Fischer. Thought this was an interesting post-discussion point. See you at the movies!

      Soooo bummed I missed this ... I was all set to go, but clearly cannot read and went to the MCC campus. D'Oh! There I was at an empty auditorium. Glad everyone enjoyed it -- it's up for an Oscar. Drats!!

    Very good film. Not simple at all, a lot of complex relationships, desires and ambitions. Great appearances by some big big stars. and not expecting it, great great music.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
