Chic featuring Nile Rodgers
Chic are an American disco and R&B band that were founded in 1976 by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards. The group, still fronted by Rodgers, are best known for hit songs including Le Freak, Dance Dance Dance, I Want Your Love, Good Times - the latter of which provided the bedrock of The Sugarhill Gang's A Rapper's Delight, the first multiple-platinum Hip Hop single. The group regard themselves as a rock band for the disco movement 'that made good on hippie peace, love and freedom'. In October 2012, Chic were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the seventh time. Nile Rodgers, whose 1958 Fender Stratocaster has played on an estimated $2bn worth of hit music, also has numerous producer credits to his name - including Let's Dance, David Bowie's biggest-selling album, and Madonna's blockbuster album Like a Virgin, plus records by Sister Sledge, Duran Duran and Diana Ross. In March 2013, Rodgers was profiled in the highly rated BBC4 documentary special, Nile Rodgers: The Hitmaker.

This soulful singer from Liverpool was the runner up of X Factor in 2010 (beaten by Matt Cardie, but one place ahead of One Direction!). Her 2011 debut album, 'Heaven', went on to sell more than one million copies. 2013 saw the release of her follow-up album 'Freedom', which reached no.2 in the UK. It was based on the shackles of escaping from her former management and going her own way. She covered songs by Billie Holliday on her 2015 release 'Lady Sings The Blues' but returned with new material for 2016's 'Superwoman'.
