Must Go More Than Once!

This film is so rich in content — from pop culture music history to archived and contemporary performances of music we grew up with — that it was hard to absorb it all in a single viewing. Add to the mix insightful commentary from stars like Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Mick Jagger, Stevie Wonder and others about the impact that gospel-rooted black female voices made and continue to make on popular music and you’d have a lot. But artfully woven into all this are a handful of compelling stories of luck, hard work, musicianship, spectacular rises and heart-wrenching falls — and roads inexplicably not taken. And finally — the takeaway that not all talent is best expressed center stage.

Give yourself a break from CGI and sci-fi sound effects and take in one of this years best treats. 20 feet entertains with some of the best sounds of all times interspersed with authentic interviews with all the characters that make up the best of pop music since the 60's. You will walk away inspired and entertained.

A Must-See For Students of Rock, Pop, and R&B Music

If you're the type of person who reads Album/CD liner notes to see who the background singers are, as I am, then you will want to see '20 Feet From Stardom'. Some of my all-time favorites get to tell their stories: Lisa Fischer, Merry Clayton, Tata Vega, The Waters Family, Darlene Love. I was surprised Cissy Houston wasn't included but don't fault the film for the omission. Some very interesting musical history is revealed in the film as well. And, of course, there's great music.

This movie is so good on so many levels that I went back to see it again the next day, so I could share it with my wife. Every music fan should see it. It is this year's Searching For Sugarman.

For anyone who has appreciated music over the past 40+ years up to now - this movie covers the singers that made it happen. The ups/downs of singing back-up.
