Darlene Love + her Backup Voice!

By January 13, 2015Uncategorized

If you caught the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet from Stardom, then you witnessed the amazing pipes of Darlene Love, who is still singing backup for stars after 50 years!

She appears on Bette Midler’s latest album, is preparing for her own solo release and is on tour as almost always. She tells of singing gospel in empty rooms with Elvis during breaks from his television show and thinking, “Whoa, I’m sitting here singing in this room with Elvis!” She said he didn’t put on any airs. He was very easygoing. What I want to know is-did Elvis ever think, “Whoa, here I am singing gospel with Miss Darlene Love!”
