Twenty Feet from Stardom 
Tonight Monday 4th December 11.15 Film Four. 

I missed this on its release and have waited a long time to see it. 
Morgan Neville’s 2014  Academy award wining documentary following  the lives of female backing singers for leading rock artists  includes Mary Clayton , Judith Hill and Darlene Love. It also features Patti Austin, Gloria Jones , Stevie Wonder. and Luther Vandross. 

Great quote from backing singer Judith Hill “ When you are a backing singer it can be a springboard but it can easily become a quicksand if thats not what you want to do” .

Former backing singers who are not featured include: 
Witney Houston, Mary J Blige . John Legend . Angie Stone, PP Arnold. Chaka Khan, Lou Rawls. 

No doubt you’ll be able to add to the list. I guess there is a whole conversation to be had about rock music drawing on Black ..predominantly female singers. Over to you..
