Fashion: The singer, 35, looked incredible as she donned a fuchsia long-sleeved dress with a plunging neckline
She joined crowds demanding support for a Bill that ensures artists are ‘fairly paid’ for streams of their music.
The singer was joined by Sex Pistols founding bassist Glen Matlock and 30 MPs outside Westminster as they highlighted the importance of the Bill, which was presented in parliament on December 3.
The Bill is backed by the Musicians’ Union and The Ivors Academy for songwriters and composers, and sponsored by Labour MP Kevin Brennan.
It would introduce a right to equitable remuneration for streaming income – where performers have a right to receive a share without reference to their label contracts.

Pink a pink dress like Rebecca wearing Virgos Lounge
What’s the easiest way to stand out from the crowd at an event? Wear colour, of course.
We didn’t need to tell Rebecca Ferguson that as she donned this stunning hot pink gown by Virgos Lounge for the Cigar Smoker Of The Year event.
The dress has it all: dramatic sleeves, floor-sweeping skirt and lace trims. Really though, it’s the hot pink shade making it a statement piece.
Fortunately, with party season around the corner, it’s a dress we mere mortals can shop. It far belies the £165 price tag, so don’t miss out by clicking the link.

The Bill’s central aim, according to its supporters, is to ‘ensure performers and composers are properly remunerated, by placing the treatment of revenue gained from music streaming services on to a common footing with the treatment of revenue gained from other sources’.
However, the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), the UK independent and major record labels association, said the Bill ‘completely misunderstands today’s music business’ and would bind the sector in ‘red tape’.
Officially titled the Copyright (Rights And Remuneration Of Musicians) Private Member’s Bill, it comes amid increased awareness of streaming royalties due to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee inquiry in the economics of streaming.
The committee’s report previously warned that ‘pitiful returns’ from the current system are impacting the “entire creative ecosystem” and ministers subsequently referred the case of the market dominance of major record labels to the Competition and Markets Authority.

Mr Brennan, who is sponsoring the Bill, said: ‘More and more people are streaming music – heightened by the pandemic – yet, unlike for radio, there is no guaranteed royalty payment for all the musicians who have contributed to the recording being streamed.
‘To redress this, my Private Member’s Bill seeks to allow performers and composers to access means to ensure a fair sharing of revenues generated from their works.
‘In particular, the Bill will introduce a right to equitable remuneration for performers on musical works, where works that they have performed upon are made available to the public.
‘These reforms would lead to more new music, the revival of recording studios, a boost to the UK session music scene, the unearthing of a new generation of British talent, and Britain becoming once again a world-leading cultural hub for the recorded music industry.’

The deputy general secretary of the Musicians’ Union, Naomi Pohl, said: ‘The domination of the major music groups in the streaming market is clear. Musicians and songwriters are not getting a fair enough deal and legislative reform is overdue.
‘Now is the time to address the imbalances in the music industry and in music streaming in particular. We are calling on the Government to allow a free vote on the Brennan Bill on 3rd December.
‘Members across the House of Commons have already voiced their support for the Bill, showing the depth of bipartisan commitment to fixing streaming to ensure performers are fairly paid for their streamed music.’
