Directed by: Morgan Neville
Staring: Darlene Love, Merry Clayton & Lisa Fischer
“Backup” singers live in a world just beyond the spotlight, their voices bringing harmony to some of the greatest legends in music history. This Oscar winning documentary reveals the intimate stories of these unknown singers. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, it is a tribute to the unsung voices who bring shape and style to the music, and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent in the shadows. 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. The film uses interviews with veterans and concert footage to tell its story.
