Monday Night Movies at North Branch: 20 Feet from Stardom

altMonday, May 12, 6 pm, North Branch

The backup singer exists in a strange place in the pop music world; they are always in the shadow of the feature artists even when they are in front of them in concert while they provide a vital foundation for the music. Through interviews with veterans and concert footage, the history of these predominately African-American singers is explored through the rock era. Furthermore, special focus is given to special stand outs who endeavored to make a living in the art burdened with a low profile and more personal career frustrations, especially those who faced the very different challenge of singing in the spotlight themselves. 20 Feet from Stardom. (DVD 2014).

Run Time: 91 minutes

Rated: PG-13 (for some strong language and sexual material)
