“Like many people, I sing in the car, but only when I put it in reverse. I’m a back up singer”

Being a “backup-up singer” has nothing to do with backing up a car, but there are jokes.

Wikipedia: Backing vocalist
A backing vocalist is a singer who provides vocal harmony with the lead vocalist or other backing vocalists. A backing vocalist may also sing alone as a lead-in to the main vocalist’s entry or to sing a counter-melody. Backing vocalists are used in a broad range of popular music, traditional music, and world music styles.
