Michael Jackson’s back-up singer joins Groban on tour

Michael Jackson’s former backing singer Judith Hill has signed up to join Josh Groban on tour. The new Sony artist will open the show and also join Groban during his set for two songs, The Prayer and Remember When It Rains, after teaming up with the operatic star in the studio.
Hill, who has also backed Stevie Wonder and Sir Elton John, was working with the King of Pop on his This Is It dates when he died in 2009.
Since then, she has performed on U.S. reality TV show The Voice and appeared in director Morgan Neville’s acclaimed 20 Feet From Stardom documentary, which shines the spotlight on the untold true story of the back-up singers behind some of music’s biggest names.
Her North American dates with Groban begin on Wednesday (02Oct13) in Boise, Idaho.
