Fascinating film as it explored the particular musicianship - and life's challenges - of backup singers. Some were familiar but others were revelations. In particular, Lisa Fischer's current singing brought tears from it's shear emotion. Will definitely be watching for her - and Judith Hill.

This is a must see film for anyone who has loved rock n roll throughout their lives. A joyous testament to the power of voice and the back up women singers who have given us the soundtrack of generations.

Wasn't sure what I was going to see upon purchasing a ticket for this movie but I was pleasantly surprised!! Riveting look at the best of the back-up singers of the last 30 or so years. I think this will be one of the documentaries nominated for the Academy Awards.

A Thoroughly Warm And Engaging Documentary.

As documentary subjects go, it’s the rare one that actually entertains AND enlightens you. This can be said for this feature length exploration of the roles of several prominent backing vocalists from contemporary music history. If you enjoyed the music of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, you’ll really enjoy this feature. See it. You won’t be disappointed.
