Directed by Morgan Neville | 2013

With Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer

Their voices can be heard on recordings by the likes of the Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, and David Bowie, but chances are you don’t know their names. This rousing Academy Award-winning documentary shines a spotlight on the unsung heroes of the recording industry: the backup singers. Through perseverance and sacrifice, these jaw-droppingly talented artists overcame personal and professional setbacks to leave their leave mark on popular music.

Film begins at sundown.
