I've always loved backup singers and this film not only honors these remarkable women, but has a ton of great music. I had no idea of the power and artistry of Darlene Love, Lisa Fischer, Merry Clayton, Tata Vega, and Judith Hill -- among others. The power of gospel backgrounds.
It's a sparkling documentary --the filmmakers do everything right. The last number, with Darlene Love doing "Lean on Me," is stunning; the backup harmonies gave me chills. It's not playing at many theaters, so I'd try to see it soon.
