Happy Birthday Chaka Khan


Chicago's Yvette Marie Stevens, better known at Chaka Khan, turns 56 today. She is one of my favorite singers of all-time - and I had the pleasure of seeing her perform at the Roxy one New Year's Eve. Chaka was a bit of a mess that night - but still absolutely FIERCE.

This Is My Night, Clouds, and Ain't Nobody are my three favorite Chaka Khan songs. If I would have ever been a runway model, I always imagined TEARING UP the runway to Ain't Nobody. Naomi Campbell, eat your heart out!!

Happy Birthday Chaka!

that bitch is too, too fierce... "i feel for you" is prob one of the best songs ever, but i really need to get my hands on a "greatest hits" album.

sidebar ~ not to knock the dee-vuhs, but does anyone look at chaka or aretha's current bodies vs. their young bodies and see beyonce in 20 years? maybe it's just me...
