British singer-songwriter Christine McVie, the singer behind hits like Little Lies, Don’t Stop, and more, died aged 79, her family said. 

An official statement regarding her death stated that she peacefully died at a hospital while her family was with her. 

She wrote some of Fleetwood Mac’s most popular songs and even played with the band. Her other hits include Everywhere, Say You Love Me, and Songbird.

McVie quit Fleetwood Mac in 1998, after working with it for 28 years, but came back in 2014.

The family in a statement said, “we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally”.

McVie, born Christine Perfect,  married John McVie the bassist of Fleetwood Mac and became part of the group starting in the 1970s.

Fleetwood Mac got famous as one of the world’s best-known rock bands in the 1970s and ’80s.

Christine Mcvie retired and went to Kent in 1998 after their live album, The Dance, became a success. She said fear of flying meant she was leaving the band.

But she again found her love of performing at a one-time appearance at London’s O2 arena in 2013 and returned to them a year later.

McVie told in an interview with the British daily newspaper the Guardian, “It was amazing like I’d never left. I climbed back on there again and there they were, the same old faces on stage,” she told the Guardian newspaper at the time.

In another interview in 2017 with British broadcaster BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs program that she had developed agoraphobia after leaving the band.
