Springsteen, Stevie Wonder & Sting’s Back-Up Singers Get the Spotlight (Video)

Posted by & filed under SFW, Video.


The doc that took Sundance by storm shines the bright ligths on the back-up singers whose voices you’ve heard, but whose names have remained mostly a mystery.

With interviews featuring Bruce Springsteen, Sting and Stevie Wonder, this film has to be seen to be believed. The distance between celebrity super stardom and relative obscurity might just be twenty feet.

Check out the trailer:

And, here’s the official word:
“Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film TWENTY 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 artists each have 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, TWENTY 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.”
