Chaka Khan, winner of ten Grammy awards, will offer a fabulous set of her hits as she takes the stage at 9 p.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2012, in the Tropicana Showroom.
She is undeniably one of those singers whose music has staying power. More than 30 years into her career, Chaka Khan remains one of the most exciting and consistent performers in the music industry. Accompanied by her 13-member band, Khan will sing from her treasure trove of hit music, including the best sellers: “I Feel for You,” “Through the Fire,” “Tell Me Something Good,” “I’m Every Woman,” “Ain’t Nobody” and “Do You Love What You Feel?”
In a crowded music field, Khan remains at the top of her game, with 10 Grammy Awards, countless Lifetime Achievement awards and sold out concerts worldwide.
It was 1970 when Khan burst onto the top of the music scene as the lead singer for the multi-racial band Rufus. Khan’s all-powerful voice, show-stopping stage presence and elaborate costumes created a standard that set her apart from any other singer before or after her.
As with many artists, Chaka sought to establish a solo career. She left Rufus and immediately released the smash hit, “I’m Every Woman.” Her catalog grew even more impressive with such hits as “Clouds,” “Papillon,” and “What’Cha Gonna Do For Me?” She later collaborated with the artist Prince on the song that made her a household name: “I Feel For You.”
Although known for her soul and R&B music, Khan has demonstrated versatility through her pairing with countless artists, including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Quincy Jones. Additionally, Khan’s powerful vocals can be heard on a number of soundtracks including the movies, “Clockers,” “Set It Off,” “Miami Vice,” “White Knights,” “27 Dresses,” “Bridget Jones’ Diary,” and “Madea’s Family Reunion.”
In her fourth decade as an artist, Chaka Khan has shown no signs of slowing down. Don’t miss your chance to see this diva of soul on Saturday, January 21, 2012 at Tropicana.
