UNDERGROUND SOUND SERIES
The Judith Hill name checks an eclectic smattering of inspiration and influences including Jimi Hendrix, Frederic Chopin, Aretha Franklin, Nina Simone, the Clark Sisters and Stevie Wonder. Hill was selected to duet with the late Michael Jackson during his This Is It concerts and sang lead at Jackson’s memorial service, putting her on the worldwide map in an instant. Judith’s rise to fame is explored in 20 Feet from Stardom, the documentary narrated by Morgan Freeman, where her performances helped win a Grammy for Best Music Film. Prince summoned Hill to his famed Paisley Park compound where together they recorded her debut full-length solo album Back in Time. Hill was wildly-popular on the fourth season of hit TV show The Voice and sang on the official soundtrack to Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and Happy Feet Two.
