Best Documentary: SIFF 2013 Golden Space Needle Awards

 A breakout audience favorite at Sundance, Twenty Feet from Stardom follows several gifted backup singers living in the shadows of superstardom. Their work charted the rise of the modern pop vocal sound from the gospel tradition to the more impassioned sounds of the turbulent '60s. Special guests Tata Vega and Merry Clayton will each perform a song following the movie (Centerpiece Gala screening only)!
