About Chaka Khan
The legendary Chaka Khan first rose to popularity
when she was a vocalist in the funk band Rufus. After the band's breakout hit "Tell Me Something Good" soared to the number
3 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, the group was catapulted to fame. They later won a Grammy Award, and they went on to release
a number of additional hits like "Sweet Thing," "Once You Get Started," "Hollywood," and "Do You Love What You Feel." Their
platinum albums became massive hits, like "Rufusized," "Ask Rufus," "Rufus, Featuring Chaka Khan," "Masterjam," and "Street
Player." Rufus' massive success was largely due to Chaka Khan's stage presence and incredible vocals. By 1978, Chaka was ready
to shine as a solo star, and she scored a record deal with Warner Bros.
Chaka Khan went on to release her anticipated
debut album in 1978, which was propelled to success by the song, "I'm Every Woman." The album would eventually achieve platinum
status, and it would pave the way for her future success as a solo performer. She continued to release albums in the next

of the album became a huge hit, peaking at number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and reaching number 1 on the Hot Dance Club
Play chart and the Hot Hip-Hop/R&B Songs chart. The song even topped the chart in the U.K. The success of the album "I
Feel For You" was also driven forward due to hits like "Through the Fire" and "This is My Night," both of which remained very
popular during the time.
