This Brooklyn-born vocalist has performed with iconic acts including Luther Vandross, Tina Turner and the Rolling Stones. Her impressive career as a backup singer turned successful solo artist was chronicled in the Oscar-winning documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom. The documentary helped cement her celebrity-status, and boosted her continued solo-artist tours as well as further appearances with the Stones. She will bring her belting vocals to the campus of UCSB this February for what promises to be a memorable performance.
