Fruitvale Station: Filmmaker Ryan Coogler makes his feature directorial debut with this drama centered on the tragic shooting of Oscar Grant (Michael B.

Now in this Academy Award® nominated documentary, director Morgan Neville shines the spotlight on the untold stories of such legendary background singers as Darlene Love, Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer,  Judith Hill and more. These are the triumphs and heartbreaks of music’s greatest unsung talents, featuring behind-the-scenes footage, and vintage live performances.
