Please join us for our annual fundraising film night. This year we’re showing the amazing, Oscar-winning 20 Feet from Stardom.

The film follows the behind-the-scenes of backup singers and stars Darlene Love, Judith Hill, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Táta Vega, and Jo Lawry, As well as brilliant music and stunning singing, it also touches on questions of race and gender stereotyping.
