Judith Hill will give her original song “Desperation” its television debut this Friday, June 7, when she performs on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” The track is featured on 20 Feet From Stardom: Music From The Motion Picture (Columbia Records), the soundtrack from the compelling new film from award-winning director Morgan Neville.
In addition to penning and performing her own material, Judith – who wrote her first song at the age of four – has backed such artists as the late Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Elton John. Hers is one of the stories told in 20 Feet From Stardom, which opens in select theatres on June 14 before expanding in the weeks to follow. The film shines the spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. The 20 Feet From Stardom trailer can be seen here.
USA Today observed: “20 Feet From Stardom features some of the catchiest and most memorable refrains, riffs and hooks sung by background vocalists, and tells the personal stories of some of the best voices in the business…in this film the stadium-filling rock stars play second fiddle.”
20 Feet From Stardom: Music From The Motion Picture will be available digitally on June 7 via all digital service providers. It will be released physically on June 18. In addition to contributing “Desperation,” Hill, is featured on three other songs that appear on the 20 Feet From Stardom soundtrack.
About Christopher Street West
For over 40 years, Christopher Street West (CSW) has produced LA PRIDE, a series of events celebrating the accomplishments of the LGBT community and shedding light on its continued struggle for equality. A year after the modern lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender liberation movement was launched by the mob-led rebellion at the Stonewall Inn on New York’s Christopher Street in June 1969, activists in Los Angeles’ community came together to honor the rebellion with the world’s first PRIDE Parade in Hollywood, CA. Today, the organization continues to promote equality and diversity amongst the LGBT community and its peers with a three-day event held in West Hollywood, CA. The non-profit organization is comprised of volunteers committed to the goals of human rights, education and outreach.
