Fleetwood Mac and fans are mourning the loss of co-vocalist, keyboardist, and songwriter, Christine McVie, who passed at the age of 79 this week.
Following the news of McVie’s sudden passing, several have taken to social media to pay tribute to the musician, including fellow bandmate and best friend, Stevie Nicks.
In the letter, Nicks revealed she was not aware of McVie’s illness until late Saturday (11/26), just days before McVie’s passing. Nicks expressed she had a strong desire to go visit her friend in London when she heard the news, but was told to “wait.”
“I wanted to get to London — but we were told to wait,” she said before using the “Hallelujah” lyrics to express her emotions.
McVie’s family revealed her passing with a statement that informed fans she died peacefully on the morning of November 30 following a “short illness.”
"She passed away peacefully at hospital this morning, Wednesday, November 30th 2022, following a short illness,” the statement reads. “She was in the company of her family.”
Shortly after her family released a statement, Fleetwood Mac took to social media with a statement of their own confirming McVie’s death while honoring her legacy calling her “one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure.”
