Judith Glory Hill is an American singer and songwriter born in Los Angeles, California. Her voice is "distinctive, soulful and has an earthy quality that makes it unique". She has provided backing vocals for such artists as the late Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and Josh Groban. In 2009, Hill was chosen as Michael Jackson's duet partner for the song "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" during his This Is It concert tour. After Jackson's death in 2009, she, along with the rest of the This Is It cast members, performed at Jackson's memorial service and attracted global attention when she sang the lead on the song "Heal the World". She is a featured artist in the movie 20 Feet from Stardom, a documentary film that tells the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the "greatest musical legends of the 21st century". Hill is also featured on the film's soundtrack. She was a contestant during the fourth season of The Voice. Her elimination during the Top 8 show was considered one of the most shocking of the season. A number of Hill's original ballads, including "Desperation" were featured in the 2012 Spike Lee film Red Hook Summer. Hill opened for Josh Groban during the third leg of his All That Echoes World Tour in Fall 2013. She also performed two duets with him in his set for "The Prayer" and "Remember When It Rained", the latter of which was released as a single. She has signed with Sony Music and her debut album will be available in 2014.
