20 Feet From Stardom

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 superstardom. 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.


The film starts at 7, so let's gather around 6:45 to get our tickets and chat. It isn't long, so let's definitely plan to go out afterwards.

    Loved it! In depth about the pivotal role backup singers have played and how incredibly talented they are. Highlights differences among singing for the love of it vs. performing vs. stardom; discusses differences in vocal goals such as being a soloist versus blending as a group.

    I'm likely planning to see it before tomorrow night with some family members. However, I may still be able to join the Indie group afterwards for a snack or drink.
