As a backup singer, Judith Hill provided vocal mood and colour for some of the greatest stars in the world—Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Rod Stewart to name a few. In the documentary 20 Feet from Stardom, her haunting track “Desperation” was a thrilling standout. Now’s the time for Hill to close the distance between herself and stardom: her voice recalls some of the finest singers in the last 60 years of R&B, including Diana Ross, Patti Labelle and Irma Thomas. Hill is a standout vocalist whose talent has been too long in the shadows of those singers whose name the audience recognized, but finally she is getting the recognition she deserves for her talent and abilities.
