Nile takes a moment to comment on a rare pressing of “Dance, Dance, Dance”, CHIC’s very first single originally slated for release on Buddah Records — plus live footage of Nile ft. The CHIC Organization at Damrosch Bandshell. Thanks to the Lincoln Center staff. http://lcoutofdoors.org/

Watching one of my childhood heroes onstage in NYC was one of summer’s best moments for me. Just looking at Nile Rodgers made me tired LOL. Here he is performing, bouncing around onstage, snapping photos of the opening act and after with the fans, one day after a nerve treatment with a cancer specialist. You can read more about his victorious life & recovery at his Planet C blog here.
We want to thank his staff, the A team, for giving us access to continue our twitter conversation on a topic he discusses at length in his book “Le Freak”– Chic’s very first single, the Buddah pressing of “Dance, Dance Dance” (Yowsa, Yowsa, Yowsa). Thank you Nile for your generosity & inspiration!
One of the original supermodels — and first black covergirl from europe 25 years ago — speaks to Eve Jackson about her charity Fashion for Relief, which hosted a catwalk show in Cannes raising money for the Save the Children charity, pulling in stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Uma Thurman, Kate Moss and Queen Rania of Jordan. She also spoke to FRANCE 24 about the refugees she spent time with in Jordan.
