Vocalist Judith Hill has been tapped by multi-platinum-selling singer Josh Groban as support for his fall “In the Round” tour, which kicked off Oct. 2.
Dates include this Sunday, Oct. 13, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
In addition to opening the show, Hill joined Groban during his set for two songs: “The Prayer” and “Remember When It Rains.”
Hill, who contributed backing vocals to three tracks on Groban’s latest album, “All That Echoes,” will also be playing a series of headline dates this fall.
Praised by Rolling Stone for her “stellar powerhouse vocals,” Hill recently signed with Sony Music. She is finishing up her debut record, which will be released in early 2014.
In addition to writing and performing her own material, Hill – who wrote her first song at the age of four – has backed such artists as the late Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Elton John.
Hers is one of the stories told in director Morgan Neville’s acclaimed documentary “20 Feet From Stardom,” a film that shines the spotlight on the untold true stories of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century.
Hill was also a contestant on Season Four of NBC’s “The Voice.”
