Christine Anne Perfect (born 12 July 1943), known professionally as Christine McVie after her marriage to John McVie, is a British singer, keyboardist, and songwriter. She is best known as the keyboardist and co-lead vocalist of the band Fleetwood Mac, which she joined in 1970 while married to bassist McVie. She has also released three solo albums. McVie is known for her smoky, alto vocals and her direct but poignant lyrics, which are mostly concerned with relationships. AllMusic 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.
In 1998 McVie was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Fleetwood Mac and received the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. The same year, after almost 30 years with the band, she opted to leave and lived in semi-retirement for the next few years, releasing only one solo album in 2004. McVie appeared on stage with Fleetwood Mac at London's O2 Arena in September 2013 and rejoined the band officially in January 2014. Her first 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.
