claudia.jpgGlasgow Film Festival is delighted to announce that American soul singer Claudia Lennear will attend the Scottish Premiere of 20 Feet From Stardom on the afternoon of Saturday 22 February.

A backing singer with Ike & Tina Turner, George Harrison, and Joe Cocker, Lennear is also rumoured to be the inspiration for The Rolling Stones’ ‘Brown Sugar’ (1971) and David Bowie’s ‘Lady Grinning Soul’ (1973). She will take part in a Q&A after the film. Nominated for Best Documentary at the 2014 Academy Awards, 20 Feet From Stardom shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. From award-winning director Morgan Neville, the film includes rare archival footage, a peerless soundtrack and intimate interviews with such musical legends as Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Sheryl Crow, Mick Jagger and Sting.

Glasgow Gospel Choir will be singing songs from the documentary, as well as a selection of other hit musical numbers, before the film commences on Saturday 22 February at 15.20, in Glasgow Film Theatre’s Cinema 1. 20 Feet From Stardom will be released in the UK & Ireland on 28 March.
