It’s Chaka Khan Burfday Today!
Yvette Marie Stevens AKA Chaka Khan is a singer-songwriter whose career has spanned four decades, beginning in the 1970s as the lead singer and focal point of the funk band Rufus. Often cited as the Queen of Funk, Khan has won ten Grammys and has sold an estimated 200 million records worldwide.
Auntie Chaka has been married twice and has two children. She is said to have become a vegan to lose weight, combat high blood pressure, and fight Type II diabetes. The vegan diet seems to be working, because in recent photos Auntie Chaka is slim and trim!
