MELVIA 'CHICK' RODGERS
The first time Robbert met Chick was in Chicago 2004 at Koko Taylors 76th birthday party in Buddy Guy's Legends. She sang some gospelsongs so impressive what led to bringing Chick to Europe in 2007 for the first time. The second tour was 2009 and last year they did it again with a remarkable show in Denmark. (see video's below). Chick will be back august/september 2016.
Chick was born in Memphis and living in Chicago for years now. She started singing gospel in her fathers church. Later on she picked up soul and blues and is known for her incredible versions of Aretha Franklin songs.
Chick is backed up by a high quality Dutch 11-piece band.
