Soul and Dance Icon Alfa Anderson, who is best known as one of the original lead vocalists in the funk soul group CHIC, has released her latest single “Perfectly Chic.” The track is the third release from Anderson’s full length album Music From My Heart (all of which are available across all digital music platforms). Upbeat, pulsing and filled with nostalgia and modern themes, Perfectly Chic arrives just in time for the summer days. PERFECTLY CHIC

“Perfectly Chic is my thank you to Nile Rodgers, the late Bernard Edwards and all those artists involved in creating great classic music,” said Anderson.  “It’s my hope that when people hear the song that they party, dance and just have a good time. Let Loose!”

Anderson recently released her long-awaited solo album Music From My Heart with much fan fair. Singles “When Luther Sings” and “Sending Love” have been heating up airwaves across the country.  Music From My Heart finds Anderson’s saying plenty about life, about love, about friendship, about struggle, about coming to terms with who you are.  The album is produced and arrange by Bert Price who collaborated with her to complete the full album.

Anderson first starred in Julian “Canonnball” Adderley’s “Big Man” at Carnegie Hall before defining a whole new era in music as one of the original lead vocalists in Chic. Her voice powered classics like “I Want Your Love” and the #1 pop hits “Good Times” and “Le Freak,” which was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. During her years as a New York session singer and touring vocalist, she sang background for music icons like Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Mick Jagger, Valerie Simpson, Bryan Ferry, and Teddy Pendergrass. She recently guested on the first CHIC single in 23 years “I’ll Be There” (2015) and scored a Top 10 Billboard Dance hit as a featured vocalist on Next Step’s single with Kathy Sledge and Aristofreeks, “Get On Up” (2016).

Earlier this year, Anderson released a heartfelt tribute to her friend, Luther Vandross, with the release of the single, When Luther Sings. SoulTracks said of When Luther Sings, “The feeling is at once nostalgic and modern, providing a summery vibe that is sure to make listeners groove both in the car and on the dance floor.” For years, Anderson was an integral member of Vandross’ touring band and performed at Wembley Stadium, among many other prestigious venues around the world.  Her vocals can be heard on popular Vandross albums such as Give Me the Reason and The Night I Fell in Love, which Rolling Stone Magazine voted as one of the 100 Best Albums of the Eighties.
