With ten Grammys, tens of millions of album sales, and a career spanning back to the ’70s, when she first rose to fame fronting pioneering Chicago funk group Rufus, before blazing her own trail as a hugely beloved and influential solo r&b, soul, and funk singer and songwriter in the late ’70s and throughout the ’80s, multi-faceted artist Chaka Khan has, undoubtedly, truly earned her moniker as the “Queen of Funk.”
While he recorded output slowed throughout the ’90s, and she released just two LPs last decade, and a brand new 12th one, Hello Happiness, earlier this year, Khan has remained a celebrated and influential musical figure, continuing to tour, collaborate, and rack up late career awards and accolades. She made stops in Music City in recent years, backed by the Nashville Symphony for a more formal affair, but when Chaka returns to town this fall, Sept. 22, it’ll be much more of a party akin to her early days!
Set to headline the Grand Ole Opry House, for a huge party hosted by Music City Disco, dubbed “I Hope This Night Will Last Forever,” Chaka Khan will be joined by famed r&b/soul singer Macy Gray, breakout up and comer Victory, and Nashville’s own Sparkle City Disco, a unique, unbelievably curated, throwback show, rare both for Chaka and for Nashville. Tickets are available here at a variety of price levels- don’t miss out!
