Khan has won many Grammy’s and since the late 1970’s has established herself as a dynamic solo artist in many different fields. However, the song that made Chaka Khan a household name and propelled her to superstardom the world over was “I Feel For You.” Her head-turning artistic production caught the ear of Prince and began an epic collaboration. Chaka became the music industry’s sweetheart, as so many famous and talented artists sought to collaborate with her, including the likes of Quincy Jones, Prince, Steve Winwood, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, George Benson, The London Symphony Orchestra, Larry Graham and countless others.
To top it off, not only is she a timeless vocalist, song composer, performer, but additionally, in 1995, she went on to make her musical theater debut in London, where she starred in “Mama I Want to Sing.” This proved to be just the start for this multi-talented woman to let her infinite light shine. In 2002 Khan starred in a Las Vegas production of “Signed, Sealed Delivered”, which was a brilliant, critically-acclaimed musical based on the music of Stevie Wonder. Not long thereafter, in 2008, she made her Broadway debut when she took over the role of Sofia in Oprah Winfrey’s musical “The Color Purple.”
