Remove background shadows using Lightroom?

Hi

I have limited Lightroom experience and have tried using the adjustment brush with little success to remove the shadows in the attached picture.

I'm not so concerned with the shadows below the waist. But, really need to clean up the shadows around the heads.

Any tips would be appreciated!

Thanks,
James
