This last weekend Alfa Anderson, Luci Martin & Norma Jean Wright a.k.a. "Next Step" (formerly of CHIC) performed at the charity gala event "Night Of A Thousand Gowns Gala" in New York City. Below Are photos from that event.
Present at this event was also Debbie Harry, who's first solo album Koo Koo was produced by CHIC, and we all remember Blondie's "Rapture" also an homage to CHIC's "Good Times".. and as most of you remember Blondie and CHIC played a legendary gig together on Bonds Casino in New York City back in 1981. So these ladies getting together was certainly like a super nova explosion went off right there in that room. Historic in chictribute.com's opinion. Would it not have been perfect if Debbie got on stage right there and Alfa, Luci & Norma Jean performed "Now I Know You Know" together with her.
As reported on before, on this newsblog, Shalamar royalty and a big star in her own right Jody Watley also performed at the the event, and as we know she is a major CHIC fan this was a particularly good line-up. You all remember Jody's excellent cover of CHIC's "I Want Your Love" a few years back. The Ladies certainly radiates happiness in the photos.
As soon as any video becomes available from this performance of Next Step, we will post it here. In the meantime please download their latest single "Get On Up". That song was written by Kathy Sledge and she also features on it and it was produced by Aristofreeks. Below is a video clip from the recording session of "Get On Up".
