The Luckman Fine Arts Complex at Cal State LA is honored to present the legendary Queen of Funk, Chaka Khan.
Her iconic voice and musical style have defined pop, soul, jazz, and funk since she rose to stardom almost as soon launched her career. Commemorating her 50th anniversary in the music industry, 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.
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.
