Lisa Fischer can sing like nobody’s business. If you don’t immediately recognize her name, that’s because she’s spent the majority of her career as a backup singer for the Rolling Stones, Luther Vandross, Sting, Chris Botti, and dozens of others. As one of the top session and backup singers, she’s prominently featured in the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom. Her astonishing range, spot-on intonation, mastery of the stage, and infectious sweet smile make her a go-to singer for the likes of Chaka Khan, Beyoncé, Bobby McFerrin, and Aretha Franklin. After winning Grammys for best female R&B performance (1992) and best music film, she ha now assembled her own band and claimed her well-deserved place center stage.
