Chaka Khan

There's a perfection and a precision to the music of Chaka Khan that, twenty five years after her recording debut, is still without comparison. For female vocalists, Chaka Khan has provided the standard to follow. Crossing the borders between rhythm & blues, jazz, pop, fusion and funk with ease, she has not only become one of the premier vocalists of our time, but one of the few female singers who can legitimately lay claim to the term "diva." Chaka began her singing career at the age of 11, forming a group called the Crystalettes. At 13, she was christened Chaka, which means fire, by an African shaman, and by 15, she was performing in local clubs under that name. (She acquired Khan after a brief marriage). At 18, she found herself fronting a group of musicians by the name of Rufus. Chaka brought to the ensemble a vocal range that was clearly in a class by itself. The proof of that powerful voice was apparent in the band's 1974 debut, which netted a Grammy for "Tell Me Something Good." In the years to come, Chaka and Rufus would prove to be one of the most popular and influential groups in music, effortlessly bridging the gap between pop, rock and soul. In just five years, they notched 11 chart albums and nine Top 40 hits, including "Sweet Thing," "Once You Get Started," "You Got The Love" and “I Feel For You.” Chaka released iKhan in 2013. She remains a huge draw on the road.
