Rosie Danvers has been collaborating with Kanye since 2005.

 

After meeting in London, Kanye invited Rosie to orchestrate several of his tracks, including ‘All Falls Down’, 'Jesus Walks’ and 'Diamonds of Sierra Leone’ for a collaboration with Wired Strings at Milan Fashion week. The following week he invited her to perform with him at Live 8 in Philadelphia together with Wired Strings.

Their next project was a collaboration at the famous Abbey Road Studios in London, for a live performance of West's album ‘Late Registration’. West continued to send her tracks throughout the Summer of 2005 until she had orchestrated the entire album, ‘Late Registration’.
