The Queen of Funk!
As the lead singer of the band Rufus, Chaka Khan is a seriously celebrated singer-songwriter from Chicago.
Her first album came in 1978 and new albums have continued to appear since. Her latest release dropped as late as 2019 with Hello Happiness.
Most famous for her cover of Prince‘s I Feel For You, I’m Every Woman (later covered by Whitney Houston), Tell Me Something Good (written for her by Stevie Wonder), she’s also not afraid of classics such as My Funny Valentine.
But without a doubt, Chaka Khan is best known for her signature song: Ain’t Nobody, a tune still played every weekend by most covers bands, several decades later.
As well as her smash hits, the many solo albums, and everything she released with her band Rufus, Chaka Khan also collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business.
Including the aforementioned Prince and Stevie Wonder, she also worked with Ray Charles, Steve Winwood, Robert Palmer, Ry Cooder, De La Soul, and Mary J Blidge.
As far as Grammy Awards, Chaka Khan is a regular at the prestigious event with 22 nominations and 10 wins to her name.
