Christine McVie at 70: A Beautiful Tribute Video

 

She turned 70 years old last Friday, born on July 12, 1943, in Lancashire, England.

Although the attention has been more focused on the other talented female singer in Fleetwood Mac, Christine left her own distinctive and powerful mark on the legendary band.

It was Christine’s song, “Over my Head” that put the band on American radio and into the National Top 20.

She also wrote and sang the Top 20, “Say You Love Me” and the #3 hit, “Don’t Stop”.

Of course, that only names but a few amazing songs that have sprung from such a talented musician.

While not with Fleetwood Mac anymore, her distinctive, soft, ethereal vocals are instantly recognizable and I always thought they provided a nice contrast to Stevie Nick’s very different vocal sound.

She is also an accomplished keyboard/piano player.

Although Christine has largely stepped out of the glare of the public eye, she occasionally surfaces, like back in 2004, when she released her solo album, “In the Meantime”, or in 2006 when she was awarded the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors‘ Gold Badge of Merit at a ceremony held in London.

The tribute video is a great nod to a wonderful, and largely underrated artist!

Happy birthday, Christine!
