Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. Twenty Feet From Stardom  shines a spotlight on the untold true stories of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century.

Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung talents who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonising with others.

These gifted artists, including Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Judith Hill, Claudia Lennear, Darlene Love, Tata Vega and more, 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, Twenty Feet From Stardom  boasts intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Sheryl Crow, 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 centre stage in the film.
