The documentary movie, 20 Feet From Stardom opens this Friday June 14th. It traces the history of the pop background singer, starting with the Phil Spector girl groups of the 1960’s, touching upon their roles in the work of artists like Lou Reed and the Talking Heads, and bringing to light their presence in the pop music of today. Most certainly Merry Clayton and other significant divas are included in this warm tribute.
A public screening of the film took place on a NY city rooftop on the lower East Side on Saturday night, June 8. Darlene Love featured in the movie gave a live performance followed by a Q&A with the director Morgan Neville.
