Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert continues to demonstrate that he has one of the most powerful and unique voices in current pop music. Last night he joined the legendary Nile Rodgers to deliver a rousing cover version of David Bowie's classic "Let's Dance." Nile Rodgers is the leader of disco band Chic who gave us the #1 smash hits "Le Freak" and "Good Times." Following the heyday of the group, Nile Rodgers turned to production and session work. Among his successes was David Bowie's chart topping "Let's Dance." Nile Rodgers returned to the spotlight this year with his inimitable guitar work on Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."

Adam Lambert will be performing at this year's iHeartRadio Festival with Queen taking over Freddie Mercury's classic lead vocals. Last night's event was Nile Rodgers' dance party to benefit the non-profit All For the East End. This was not Adam Lambert's first collaboration with Nile Rodgers. They worked together on the track "Shady" from Adam Lambert's #1 hit album Trespassing. They have also performed "Let's Dance" live before. They delivered a well received performance of the song last January at the We Are Family Foundation Gala with Sam Sparro joining in. Check out this phenomenal pair performing "Let's Dance" below.

Seeing Adam Lambert live is an exciting, joyous experience. He just makes you feel filled with positive energy and stuns you with his powerful vocal ability and magnetic stage presence! I’ve seen him 8 times and it’s never enough! He can sing anything, any genre to perfection off the top of his head, so naturally and easily. He’s as genuinely nice as talented. I’m in awe of this man!
