Usually the backing singers sound better than the stars and this documentary explores the world of the women with remarkable voices singing 20 feet away from the headline names. Spanning the pop world from the Crystals to Michael Jackson, taking in the Stones and Sting we meet the women who add that something special to those much loved hits but perform just beyond the starlight. In a world awash with celebrity hype their stories are told with refreshing honesty and humour. Oh yes and the music’s great.
