Chaka Khan has been in music for 42 years and she has made an indelible impression on soul. Her breakthrough came as lead singer of the band Rufus in the late seventies. She later proved that she could succeed as a solo artist with classic hits like I’m Every Woman, Ain’t Nobody and I Feel For You. The latter was written by Prince who is one of the many admirers of Khan’s unique voice. But as a vocalist, Khan can do more than only sing soul; she has also shared the stage with greats like Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. This grand lady of soul has won countless prizes including ten Grammy awards. She has no intention of stopping yet. With her band driving her on, she effortless brings down the roof. A golden opportunity that fans of good soul should not miss.
