Over the course of her remarkable career thus far, singer/ songwriter Judith Hill has shared her musical gifts in a variety of ways. The Los Angeles native has been a background singer for such legends as Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Ringo Starr, and the late Michael Jackson, serving as the latter’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 the singer’s public memorial service.) She also appeared in the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of several acclaimed background singers, including Hill, who earned a Grammy Award for
“Best Music Film” for her participation. Post-This Is It, Hill appeared on The Voice, where she began to cement her identity as a solo artist with a series of knockout performances that showed her ability to put her own distinctive, captivating spin on familiar songs.

Hill’s global fanbase has gotten to know her through these high-profile performances. However her biggest champion these days, yet another music legend, did not. “Prince did not see me on This Is It. He had not seen 20 Feet from Stardom. He had not seen me on The Voice. He saw me on some random TV interview where I was asked who I’d want to collaborate with and I said him,” Hill says with a laugh. After doing a bit of research, Prince called Hill personally and said he’d love to work with her. “Right out of the gate it was an artist-to-artist conversation about music,” Hill recalls of the call, during which Prince also extended an invitation to the listening party for his latest album, Art Official Age and, a few weeks later, to his studio in Minneapolis. “There were no plans,” she says of her first time at Paisley Park. “It was just an invitation to come hang out. I jammed with his band. I played him some of my songs. That’s when we began to start talking about music and creating. That’s really when it all began.”

    It’s excellent seeing soulful artist like Judith Hill coming to perform in Portland. The best is yet to come for this young artist. Such a smooth sound. Could she be the millineals Lauryn Hill?

    With so much going on around us, it would be great to have a night out to get lost in the music.

    I have been following her since the documentary. It would be nice to see her in such an intimate setting as Alberta Rose Theatre.

    I first saw Judith Hill in the documentary 20 feet from stardom and was blown away by her talent. I would love the opportunity to see her live.

    More music please.

    Judith’s voice is so soulful and invigorating, that hearing her sing immediately lifts my spirit. Watching her transition for back up singer to the main act would be a delight to see in person, especially since this could potentially be my first live show in Portland!

    Absolutely loved her in 20 Feet From Stardom. It would be the best early christmas present to get to see her.
