She Was Chosen To Sing Backup For Michael Jackson
After Judith left college, she spent a year in Paris and sang background for a French singer. She later got word that Michael Jackson was looking for background singers for his “This Is It” tour. Judith auditioned and landed the role! Not only was she chosen as a background singer for the tour, she was also chosen to sing a duet with the King of Pop on the ballad, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You”, which later became the highlight of the “This Is It” film.
After Michael Jackson’s passing in 2009, Judith was chosen to sing at his memorial service in his honor. Although the world was in mourning, Judith Hill’s career was simply just beginning as she was starting to gain recognition amongst the greats.
