Multi-Grammy Award-winning artist Chaka Khan is set to celebrate 50 years in the entertainment industry at The Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State LA on Saturday, January 27.
According to the organizers, this golden celebration will be an experience filled with surprises and once-in-a-lifetime moments that will add to the tapestry of her groundbreaking impact in music.
The show will also include a pre-show reception and Q&A with the current president of the RIAA.
Chaka Khan’s iconic voice and musical style have defined pop, soul, jazz, and funk since she rose to stardom almost as soon launched her career. With music sales and streams exceeding 70 million, Aretha Franklin proclaimed Chaka as a “one-of-a-kind, premier vocalist.” Prince, Whitney Houston, Erykah Badu, and Lizzo are just a handful of superstars who have called Chaka a major influence.
She’s released 21 studio albums, 10 of which were certified Gold and Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). On the Billboard charts, Chaka has racked up an impressive ten #1 singles. She also happens to be the latest woman to be inducted into the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2023.
