DCP Post-screening discussion with Kim Parent (Brooks & Dunn, Reba McEntire, Lionel Richie, Faith Hill, Jo Dee Messina); Marcia Ramirez (Patty Loveless, Rodney Crowell, Tanya Tucker, Lee Ann Womack); and Britt Savage (Garth Brooks, Tony Bennett, Trisha Yearwood, Natalie Cole, Donna Summer), moderated by Bill Lloyd.
Students who commit to remaining for the post-screening discussion may RSVP to this event to obtain tickets purchased by the Dean of Students office. Crowd pleasing and lovingly assembled, a juxtaposition of interviews with industry legends (Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger) and the background singers who supported them, including Darlene Love (the un-credited lead voice on some of Phil Spector's most memorable productions of the 1960s), Merry Clayton (the bone-chilling BGV on Rolling Stones' 'Gimme Shelter'), Lisa Fischer (Sting, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin), and the Waters Family (Michael Jackson, The Lion King)….
Filmmaker Morgan Neville’s unprecedented look at the personal journeys of these uncelebrated artists pays tribute to their indelible role in popular music.
