Thoroughly enjoyed this especially because it reflected on "my" era and heroes.

you have to see this movie! It shines the light on the lives of the seldom featured back up singers of some of the best bands and musicians around. I had chills through half the movie hearing the voices of these incredible singers.

20 feet from stardom

Interesting about the backup singers and how they have lasted through the changes in types of music. Many were better than the star they backed up, no doubt but they on their own could not make it as a star. Some are still singing and are just as good. The music and songs were goodies for sure. The downside is the movie contains a verbilzation from a so called Doctor dissing White people with the F word? There was no need for him to do that, but it seems that some black people blame all white people for their problems and failures in life... seems it on the rise? Grow up and get a life, take resonsibility for your actions.

Absolutely terrific! If you love music, play music, sing anywhere, or perform, you will love the history of backup singers. Wonderful story and details.
