Judith Hill appears at the Blue Note on Friday, May 12, at 6:30 and 9 p.m.

Judith Glory Hill, an American singer-songwriter from Los Angeles, has provided backing vocals for such artists as Michael Jackson, Prince and Josh Groban.  In 2009, Hill was chosen as Jackson’s duet partner for the song “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” during his This Is It concerts.  After Jackson’s death in 2009, she, along with the rest of the This Is It cast members, performed at Jackson’s memorial service. She attracted global attention when she sang the lead on the song “Heal the World.”  Hill’s story is recounted in 20 Feet from Stardom, a documentary film about the backup singers behind some of the “greatest musical legends of the 21st century.” She won the Grammy Award for Best Music Film for her performance in this film.
