Chaka Khan

Singer-songwriter Chaka Khan’s career has so far spanned four decades in which she won ten Grammys and sold an estimated 200 million records worldwide. Born Yvette Marie Stevens, she attributes her love of music to her grandmother, who introduced her to jazz music as a child. Having formed her first group, The Crystalettes, at age eleven, she first became known in the 70s as the frontwoman of funk band Rufus, before becoming a solo star. Her debut album Chaka was released in 1978 and featured the smash hit I’m Every Woman, later followed by other hit singles such as I Feel For You and Ain’t Nobody (with Rufus). She was a part of numerous collaborations throughout the years and in the 90’s toured with Prince as a co-headlining act.
