This Time

An unflinching look at a music industry that exists far from the overnight sensations of television's "American Idol" and "The X Factor," THIS TIME follows six diverse recording artists on the verge of their next moment in the spotlight. They've sung back-up up for Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Dusty Springfield and Jimi Hendrix, been homeless while their songs were on the charts, struggled to fill tiny cabarets and fight against the odds of the music industry -- all while holding tight to their dignity and dreams. Accompanied by a soaring soundtrack of extraordinary music, the film tracks their gut-wrenching determination to turn up the volume on their careers. From the streets of South Central Los Angeles to New York's Park Avenue, THIS TIME takes you on a unique musical journey, in this story of the transformative power of creativity. The musicians living on the flip side of this music business are legendary recording artists The Sweet Inspirations (best known as back-up singers for Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield), New York cabaret sensation Bobby Belfry, soul diva Pat Hodges (Hodges, James & Smith) and composer-producer Peitor Angell. As they battle self-sabotage and the brutality of the music industry, THIS TIME celebrates their widely ranging gifts and experiences in this inspiring story of hope, persistence and faith. Also featuring original Sweet Inspiration and gospel music star Cissy Houston. Every dream has a soundtrack.
