Filmmakers Alan Swyer and Brad Spurr have begun an campaign for their documentary film “Harlem to Hollywood" that focuses on multi-talent Billy Vera; a singer, songwriter, music producer, Grammy winner, voice artist, actor, archivist, and disc jockey. It is a behind the scenes look at what it takes to succeed in the music industry and build a career that spans over five decades.

As stated on their Indiegogo campaign, “The film will take us from Vera’s early career in New York, performing at venues ranging from the Peppermint Lounge to Harlem’s legendary Apollo Theater, and onto his reinvention in Hollywood as leader of Billy Vera & the Beaters with his #1 hit, “At This Moment,” made famous on the TV sitcom Family Ties, as well as every nook and cranny in between. This is the story of a man who pursued his dream, faced struggles, had downfalls and victories, reached success and through it all stayed true to himself."

Harlem to Hollywood will also offer a look at the evolution of the music industry from the early 1960's, when Vera's career began, until now.
