The Who: Judith Hill (Los Angeles, CA)
The What: Judith Hill is something else, something special. You know that Academy and Grammy Award winning documentary called 20 Feet From Stardom? Judith’s is one of the stories told because hers is a voice that has backed up some of the greatest like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Michael Jackson, Josh Groban, Carole King and more. Now she’s shining so very brightly in her own right because that voice can gloriously wrap itself around R&B, soul, jazz and funk with absurdly effortless ease. Judith’s debut album, Back In Time, came out in March, was produced by Judith and Prince and “Cry, Cry, Cry” is the album’s first video. Whether you cry or not is optional but talent this sharp is more than worth shedding a tear over.
The Where: With upcoming tour dates in December, catching Judith Hill live would be one way to close out your music year in style. Check out her official website for more info and keep up with her on Facebook and at @Judith_Hill on Twitter.
