Chaka Khan

When you hear the name Chaka Khan, you think of the word "legend." With a shelf full of Grammys, a wall full of platinum and gold and countless classic tracks, the iconic singer has influenced generations of musicians. Applauded for both her solo career and collaborations with former band Rufus, she's recognized for hits like "Sweet Thing," "Ain't Nobody," "I Feel for You," "Through the Fire," "I'm Every Woman" and "Tell Me Something Good." The recipient of several lifetime achievement awards, the funky-jazzy-disco-diva received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2011. In 2003, she made her literary debut with her critically acclaimed autobiography Chaka! Through the Fire. Still active in the music business, in 2012 the legendary soul singer released a star studded tribute to 17-year-old murder victim Trayvon Martin entitled "Super Life."
