Twenty Feet from Stardom sets out to right an old wrong, as a kind of ‘history of pop music’ documentary told from the point of view of the backup singer. And my god what a point of view it is. Director Morgan Neville highlights a small cluster of backup singers (among them the legendary Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, and Judith Hill) who have profoundly altered the pop music landscape by their mere presence. Uncannily, Neville interviews the big shots they often sing for – people like Bruce Springsteen, Sting, and Stevie Wonder, who are totally appreciative and just as in awe of these amazing performers as we are. (Sobs were heard throughout our screening.) In one incredibly powerful moment, Neville plays the raw audio track of Clayton singing the ‘Rape, murder’ section of ‘Gimme Shelter,’ both for Clayton and then, Mick Jagger. The vocal, raw and unencumbered by the rest of the song’s ornate sonic embellishments, is something close to transcendent, and it’s a hoot to see both Jagger and Clayton draw the same conclusion… An unexpectedly moving, often joyous triumph, Twenty Feet from Stardom proves that history isn’t just made at the front of the stage.
