20 Feet From Stardom

Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. 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. These gifted artists span a range of styles, genres and eras of popular music, but each has 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, 20 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 this Academy Award-winner.

This film is part of the Sounds of Summer: Greatest Hits Vol. 1 series.
