Judith Hill is a powerhouse vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter from Los Angeles. She’s had the distinct privilege of being a protégé to Prince who co-produced her debut album Back In Time.
She’s also sang alongside such legends as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Ringo Starr and was the opening act for tours with John Legend and Josh Groban who was her duet partner on “Remember When It Rained.” Hill was Jackson’s duet partner on the classic ballad, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” which later became a highlight of Jackson’s posthumously released film This Is It. Hill’s deeply moving performance of “Heal the World” was an indelible moment during Jackson’s public memorial service.
Judith’s is one of the stories told in Morgan Neville’s acclaimed and Oscar winning 20 Feet From Stardom, a film that shines the spotlight on the untold stories of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century.
Judith has just released “Baby, I’m Hollywood!”, the electrifying title track of her upcoming 13 track album (March 5). In the powerful visual, Judith catapults between the highs and lows of life in the spotlight, showing off both the glamour and the struggles in her pursuit of music. Oozing with classic rock and funk, the new single is both a song of heartbreak and a powerful self-love anthem.
The new album’s provocative debut single “Americana” is a call for change and challenging what it means to be an American. “Baby, I’m Hollywood!” follows her 2018 album release Golden Child and was self-produced by Hill herself.
Judith’s band for this show is Portland’s own greaterkind a local all-star project featuring some of the best young players in the PNW, all on a mission to spread a message of love and community through the medium of sound. Music to uplift the soul and move the booty.
