As I've posted on below CHIC's former lead singer Sylver Logan Sharp was to play live at Fasching jazz club here in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday October 13th, and chictribute.com was in attendance.
It was a great night. Sylver was singing from her latest album "Place To Begin" and also some covers, amongst others, Cindy Lauper's "Time After Time" where she let members of the audience sing parts of the song, one favorite moment was when she let Swedish soul singer Jennifer Brown sing. Sylver also let Jennifer Brown sing a bit on Sister Sledge's "Thinking Of You" (which you will se in the below video) later in the show during the CHIC tribute section.
Then she made an appeal for us to spread the word and download the benefit song she did last year, to help Klara Church and their work with the homeless. Together with Swedish pop star Anna Sahlene and the great singer Rigael Damar she performed that song; "One In A Million".
During the CHIC tribute section of the show Sylver sang a few words of CHIC's "CHIC Mystique" and I was hoping she was going to sing the whole song, but no. She also sang, really lovely, a bit from CHIC's "A Warm Summer Night". It's the first time I've ever heard anything from that song live.
The whole gig was over two hours! Check out the excerpt below!
The band was excellent, and led by Sylver's collaborator on her latest album Daryl L.A. Hunt (keys). Also in the band was James Bradley Jr. on drums, Chuck Anthony on guitar, Tommy Tordsson on bass and Pablo Cepeda on percussion.
I also want to thank Paris Renita who was lovely to me, Sylver Logan Sharp and Fasching, who allowed me to record the video clip. And I also want to give a shout out to Andreas our excellent waiter.
