When You’re Not The Star: What You Can Learn From The Backup Singers

A new documentary, 20 Feet From Stardom, tracks the singers who, despite huge talent, didn’t take center stage but filled a supporting role. Filmmaker Morgan Neville talks about what we can learn from the backups.

plerudulier‘s insight:

 the delightful film pays tribute to backup singers–artists whose work you’ve heard hundreds of times without ever knowing their names. The film has struck a chord not only with music lovers but also with people in the workforce who see themselves as the equivalent of backup singers in their field. Neville recalls a recent Q&A in which a man declared, “I’m a middle manager at a company. I’ve been there for 20 years. We make a great product. I’m proud of what we do, but I don’t always get all the attention in the world for it. I realized today I’m a backup singer. And we’re all backup singers.”
