"I'll Be There" is a song by the band CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers. It was produced by Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, it was intended to be the lead single for the band's album It's About Time, but due to the deaths of Prince and David Bowie, the album changed over the following years. Since Rodgers is the act's founder and only original member, he received billing credit on the song.
