The world has echoed the news that a few hours ago occupied part of all the media. Born in Bouth, Lancashire, on July 12, 1943, Christine McVie passed away at the age of 79. The longtime vocalist and keyboardist of the band Fleetwood Mac also marked a before and after in the world of music. Now, the time has come to say goodbye to her as she deserves.
His musical career has been so important that we have a lot of information about it, although we are going to delve a little deeper into it. However, there are not so many facts we know about his personal life. For this reason, from The Look we have gathered everything you need to know about her, her family and the people with whom she has shared her day to day life.
Christine McVie's musical career
Christine was a British singer, songwriter and keyboardist, whose popularity is mainly due to her participation as one of the members of Fleetwood Mac, a group she joined in 1970.
In addition to this, McVie has also released three solo albums. As far as her music is concerned, the artist is known for her contralto voice and her lyrics focus on love and relationships.
Christine has received a multitude of awards
Her absolute dedication to her singing career has been rewarded on several occasions. One of the recognitions she has received is the Brit Award, rewarding her outstanding contribution to music.
Likewise, in 2006 she received a Gold Badge of Merit Award from Basca, and in 2014 the Ivor Novello Award. Likewise, recently, in 2021, he was awarded the Trailblazer Award from the UK Americana Awards. Throughout her career she has also received two Grammy Awards.
Christine McVie's childhood
Christine was born in the village of Both, in the Lake District, but grew up near Bigmingham. She was the daughter of Cyril Percy Absell Perfect, a concert violinist and music teacher, and Beatrice Edith Maud Perfect, a medium, psychic and healer. In addition, her grandfather was an organist at Westminster Abbey.
It was precisely her family roots that linked her to the world of music and, when she was only four years old, she was introduced to the piano. She trained from the age of 11 and, from that moment on, she has never been separated from what has always been her passion.
What has McVie's love life been like?
As for her love affairs, Christine married John McVie in 1968, but this marriage did not even last 10 years. Shortly after her first divorce, she was engaged to Dennis Wilson, although that wedding never took place.
With whom she did marry, in 1986, was keyboardist Eddy Quintela, whom she finally divorced in 2003.
Despite, apparently, not having been able to find true love, Christine was very successful in her professional life and, without a doubt, we can assure that she has made great contributions to the world of music at an international level.
