With Twenty Feet From Stardom, director Morgan Neville wanted to direct his documentary cameras on the brilliant backup vocalists who’ve toiled in anonymity while supporting music’s most popular artists, like Stevie Wonder and Mick Jagger.

Judith Hill, who’s worked with Michael Jackson and Elton John, is currently one of the stars on The Voice, where she’s one of Adam Levine’s prize pupils.
