4 popular songs that Chaka Khan did first…

I’ve been listening to a lot of Chaka Khan since watching her perform at the DStv Delicious Festival earlier this month. Each time I speak to someone (usually one of my peers) they ask me who Chaka Khan is and when I sing a song to remind them, they always tell me about the other artists who did the song after Chaka.

So I decided to come up with this list of some songs that other artists have done recently that where inspired by songs originally done by Chaka Khan.

  1. Through The Wire – Kanye West

Check out Chaka’s original version, Through The Fire HERE.

  1. I’m Every Woman – Whitney Houston
