A woman whose voice needs no introduction, the great [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Chaka Khan[/lastfm] joined Pat & Kim this morning to talk about her upcoming charity concert and silent auction this Saturday that’s benefiting the great cause of education. Her special performance, “An Intimate Evening With Chaka Khan,” aims to raise money for the Agape’s Carl Anderson Scholarship Fund to help give students the dream of attending college.
We had a fascinating conversation with Chaka that goes into more detail about her personal life including her past personal struggles and how she turned her life around before it was too late, her family, music, charity work and her personal philosophy on life.
