Christine Anne Perfect (born 12 July 1943), professionally known as Christine McVie, is an English singer-songwriter and keyboardist. Her fame came as a member of rock band Fleetwood Mac, joining the band in 1970 while married to bassist John McVie. She has also released three solo albums. AllMusic critic Steve Leggett noted McVie's "naturally smoky low alto vocal style", describing her as an "Unabashedly easy-on-the-ears singer/songwriter, and the prime mover behind some of Fleetwood Mac's biggest hits." She contributed eight songs to Fleetwood Mac's 1988 Greatest Hits album, including "Don't Stop", "Little Lies", "Everywhere", "Over My Head", " Say You Love Me" and "You Make Loving Fun".
In 1998, as a member of Fleetwood Mac, McVie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Since retiring from the band, she has worked on solo material in her converted barn at her home in Wickhambreaux in Kent. McVie appeared on stage with Fleetwood Mac at London's O2 Arena in September 2013, and rejoined the band in January 2014. Her first full shows since her return came during Fleetwood Mac's On with the Show tour in October 2014. In 2014 she received the British Academy's Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement.
