Four years have passed. There is no longer any need for us to illustrate Judith Hill's value as an artist and prove her star status, since we were able to experience the magic she bestowed upon us in April 2019. We know her stories of working with Michael Jackson and Prince, and have had a glimpse into her career as a backing vocalist in the Grammy Award-winning film 20 Feet From Stardom. And now, illuminated in the spotlight, she will tell her own story. It is a courageous woman capable of overcoming any difficulty who puts herself out there on the album Baby, I'm Hollywood - and now, on the stage of the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall as well. And she has a special duet in store just for us too: with Nikolas Takács, no less.
With her exotic beauty and captivating talent, Judith Hill can boast a remarkable cultural heritage. Born in North Hollywood, she often found herself being bullied and teased because of her hair as a young girl at her all-white school. Her Japanese mother, Michiko Yoshimura, played the piano, and her African-American father, Robert ‘Pee Wee' Lee, played the bass guitar. Both of them under the spell of funk, R&B and soul, the two met while playing in the band led by drummer Chester Thompson.... Billy Preston was a regular visitor to the family home, encounters with significance little Judith would only understood later. As she grew older, the bullying ceased, and the path ordained for her became increasingly clear before her. She studied jazz in high school and classical composition at university. After starting out as a vocalist for Michel Polnareff, she went on to work with the likes of Michael Jackson, Dave Stewart and Prince. On her latest album, stepping out of the shadow of the brightest stars - and the forced seclusion caused by the pandemic - she finally shows us who Judith Hill really is. This is no disposable plastic doll manufactured by Hollywood for one-time use. She herself is Hollywood in human form. On this album of hers steeped in rock, funk and soul, she celebrates both her heroes Betty Davis, Janis Joplin and Sly Stone and her own self, the real Judith Hill, whose soul is nearly naked.
