'Twenty Feet From Stardom' puts backup singers center stage"
By Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times Film Critic
Their voices are powerful enough to tear you apart and put you back together again, and their stories will do the same. But when you call them backup singers, you better smile. That's because the performers in the infectious and irresistible "Twenty Feet From Stardom" are willing and able to outsing any solo act in sight and are not shy about letting you know it. "There is a power to what it is we do, but no one has acknowledged it," says singer Janice Pendarvis. No one until now.
Veteran director Morgan Neville ("Troubadours") took the idea offered by the late Gil Friesen, longtime president of A&M Records, and has made a moving and joyous behind-the-scenes documentary about a world filled with big, bold personalities and the music they make. These women sing in a way that is transformative for us, and, it turns out, for them as well.
Tonight’s Diabetes Roundtable podcast is inspired by the compelling new film, 20 Feet from Stardom. The film focuses on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century including Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stone, Bette Midler and Luther Vandross. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection on the conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview The Last Supreme Susaye Green. Neil will interview Susaye to find out about The Supremes, Twenty Feet From Stardom, and Her latest album.
Born in Houston, Texas, she began her professional career at the age of 12 years. After moving to New York City as a teenager, she appeared in various commercials and attended and graduated from the New York City High School of Performing Arts.
Prior to joining The Supremes, Greene sang with Ray Charles' Raelettes and Stevie Wonder's Wonderlove, which paired her with Deniece Williams and Shirley Brewer. In 1973, she sang lead as a guest vocalist on New Birth's hit "Until It's Time for You to Go" (a cover of Buffy Sainte-Marie's song). A successful singer and songwriter as well, Greene has written hit records for Michael Jackson, Deniece Williams, and many others.
Greene was a member of The Supremes from early 1976 to summer of 1977 (replacing Cindy Birdsong), and performed on their last two albums, High Energy and Mary, Scherrie & Susaye. Working alongside original member Mary Wilson and Scherrie Payne, Susaye quickly found her niche in the group and amongst the group's legions of fans. Susaye took lead on "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," in the group's live shows, which never failed to garner a standing ovation, and recorded "High Energy", the title song from the High Energy album. On June 12, 1977, the Supremes performed their farewell concert at the Drury Lane Theater in London and disbanded.
Join us for a candid converstaion with singer-songwriter Jo Lawry!
Lawry's music crosses many genres, including jazz, chamber music, skat, folk, and a little something all her own. Her debut album, I Want to Be Happy, was released in 2008 to rave reviews and named among the "Best CDs of the Decade" in Downbeat Magazine. She has also been featured as a guest on numerous modern jazz recordings, including Dr. Lonnie Smith's album Rise Up! and Kate McGarry's Grammy-nominte If Less is More...Nothing is Everything. Her new album will be released mid-2014, and features a duet with Sting on her own song, "Impossible."
Lawry is also an accomplished background singer, touring with Sting since 2009, and more recently with Sting and Paul Simon on their North-American double-bill tour. A multi-instrumentalist, she also played violin on Sting's 2011 Back to Bass tour. She was recently featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom.

Like many who realize their psychic gifts later in life, Sandy Anastasi awakened to her abilities in her late 20’s. She understood that many people develop deep psychological problems because their psychic abilities are misunderstood and often blocked. These insights and an inner need to pass on her knowledge and abilities led her to begin teaching others to develop their own psychic gifts. She believes that if you are psychic, you MUST use your gifts, or at least learn to control them, or they will use you!
Sandy has many psychic gifts, but she believes her greatest to be the ability to identify and emulate the gifts of others. Because of that she is uniquely suited to teach people to open and develop those very gifts in themselves.Sandy has been a professional psychic and astrologer since 1979. She holds a B.S. degree from Adelphi University and has teaching certifications in several fields. In addition to teaching, Sandy has worked as a Safety Engineer, and owned her own small book store for many years before retiring to become a full time psychic counselor, writer and teacher. Sandy’s writings include books on Astrology, Kabbala and Tarot, as well as psychic development.
Sandy has also appeared on many radio and television shows over the years, most notably Crossing Over and Cross Country – both television shows hosted by her good friend and former student, John Edward. She currently lives in Florida with her husband and four dogs.
From the book "Vinyl Knights" by Kenneth Howard Smith, "Merrell was eighteen years old at that time, and had been recording up the coast with a group called the Impacts. They had recorded this album called "Wipe out", surf music and stuff. The Beatles had been in the United States for almost two months now, and the Beach Boys were right up there with them. "Wipe Out" by the Surfaris was going to the top of the charts, and Merrell was telling everyone that he had wrote this song. Well, no one believed him at all. I just happened to be shopping at a local Woolworth store, and they had just received a bend full of cut-out records, and sure enough, there were ten albums from this group the Impacts on Del-Fi Records, and there was Merrell Wayne Fankhauser's name as big as life."

The Catholic Church professes seven Sacraments that convey the grace they signify: Baptism, Confirmation, Communion, Confession, Anointing of the Sick, Ordination, and Marriage. The spiritual life of the church revolves around these signs of God's love and grace. But how does a Sacrament "work"? Are there rules to them? Where in the bible can we find them? Do Catholic's believe they are more important than the bible? Only the Holy Spirit can give grace, not things made on Earth, right? What do they do? Where do they come from? Why do they matter? Who needs them and when? How do they work?
In this series, Kristina Rake, theologian, lecturer, author, and award-winning preacher, explains everyhing you need to know about the Sacraments and why they are vital, not only to the life of the Church, but to Your life in Christ.
