Christine Anne Perfect (born 12 July 1943), professionally known as Christine McVie, is an English singer, keyboardist and songwriter. Her fame came as one of the lead vocalists of rock band Fleetwood Mac, joining the band in 1970, while married to bassist John McVie. She has also released three solo albums. McVie is noted for her smoky, low alto vocal performances and, as described by AllMusic critic Steve Leggett, her direct but poignant lyrics about the joys and pitfalls of love. Leggett further describes her as an "Unabashedly easy-on-the-ears singer/songwriter, and the prime mover behind some of Fleetwood Mac's biggest hits." Eight of her songs appeared on Fleetwood Mac's 1988 Greatest Hits album, including "Don't Stop", "Little Lies", "Hold Me", "Everywhere", "As Long as You Follow", "Over My Head", "Say You Love Me" and "You Make Loving Fun".

Profile Bio Text
Christine McVie (born Christine Anne Perfect, 12 July 1943, near Greenodd, Cumbria) is an English rock singer, keyboardist, and songwriter. Her primary fame came as a member of the British/American rock band Fleetwood Mac though she has also released three solo albums. McVie has a contralto vocal range. Christine Anne Perfect was born in the small village of Bouth in the Lake District, but eventually grew up in the Bearwood area of Smethwick, where her father, Cyril, was a college professor and concert violinist. Christine`s mother Beatrice (called Tee) was a so-called medium, psychic, and faith healer. Her grandfather had played the organ in Westminster Abbey. Although Christine had been introduced to the piano at age four, she didn`t really take to music until she was 11. She continued taking classical music lessons until the age of 15, when her older brother, John, brought home a Fats Domino songbook that transformed her musical interest from classical music to Rock and Roll. Her other early influences include The Everly Brothers and The Beatles.
In the years after The Dance, Christine McVie returned to England to be near her family and stepped out of public view almost completely. In 2000 she did, however, appear in public to receive an Honorary Doctorate in Music from the University of Greenwich, England. Some years later, in December 2003, she went to see Fleetwood Mac`s last UK performance on the Say You Will tour in London, but did not join her former bandmates on the stage. Mid-2004 saw the release of McVie`s new solo album, In the Meantime, her third in a career spanning five decades. Recorded in her converted barn in Kent, England, McVie worked on the project with her nephew, Dan Perfect, who contributed guitar-playing, backing vocals, and songwriting. There was no tour to accompany this album, though McVie consented to a limited number of press interviews in the UK and the USA. In 2006 McVie was awarded the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters` Gold Badge of Merit at a ceremony held in London`s Savoy Hotel.
