“Let’s Dance, to the song we’re playing” 

 

Prince made a surprise appearance during Nile Rodgers’ set on Friday night at the 20th Essence Festival in New Orleans, making July 4th even more of a celebration when he joined the Chic leader on guitar for a cover of Bowie’s 1983 worldwide smash hit, Let’s Dance, a song which Rodgers co-produced with Bowie.

Nile’s tweets and posts on his FB page over the last 24 hours or so (below) say it all.

 

 

“Nile Rodgers & Prince jamming on David Bowie's "Let's Dance"”

 

“I'm still flipping out over this moment”

 

“I'm still reliving this show”

 

“How Proud Am I at This Moment? Playing "Let's Dance" w Prince is so symbolic. That album w Bowie changed my life... ”

 

 

There’s a fan-filmed teaser compilation on YouTube, but a full-length video of the performance is yet to surface...unless you know differently?
