Los Angeles • On New Year’s Day, they’ll finally travel that last 20 feet.

Merry Clayton, Lisa Fischer, Judith Hill and Darlene Love — the principal subjects of the documentary film "20 Feet from Stardom" — are set to perform "The Star-Spangled Banner" before the 100th Rose Bowl game in Pasadena.

Individually, the four have provided background vocals for such superstars as Bruce Springsteen and Mick Jagger.

In a field of 147 qualifying films, "20 Feet" is one of 15 to advance in voting for best documentary feature at the upcoming Academy Awards. It was a hit at the last Sundance Film Festival.



Rose Bowl media director Gina Chappin said it’s the only time in memory that the national anthem will be performed at a Rose Bowl game by musicians other than a team band.
