Last night, I got a chance to briefly watch the Soul Train Music Awards. I don’t normally watch award shows because they’re too many commercials and to much time in between the performances. But after a very busy weekend of Dangerously Beautiful activities, I decided to take a little break.
I tuned in just in time to see the Chaka Khan Tribute. I’ve been a fan of Chaka Khan since a little girl. I always thought it was cool to have all that hair (like Diana Ross) until the day that I had to do my own hair! Her voice was always so powerful and showed so much energy. It’s great to see that after all these years, she still has her skill.
Don’t get me wrong, Erykah Badu, Angie Stone, and Fantasia held their own when singing her classics. But when Angie Stone put that mike up to Chaka and let her sing, you knew who was the original. Once a musician myself, I can truly appreciate Chaka’s voice and experience. If you missed the tribute, check it out below.
