Billboard Magazine is honoring Music Legend Chaka Khan‘s career in their ‘Stars Tribute‘ issue, on newsstands now. The issue will give readers access to additional features via a mobile app, powered by Printergize. When a reader scans the magazine, they will be transported to Chaka’s official website. If only transportation to and from an actual concert was that simple.
Chaka has always been known for her big vocals and even bigger hair so it should come as no surprise that the The Queen of Funk Soul let her fiery red locks down and into the spotlight for the cover of the mag.
“I want to experience the magic I felt 40 years ago when I recorded my first record,” she said in a press release. I’m excited and looking forward to celebrating my 60th birthday in all the cities I love,” she added. “I will also have a rare opportunity to spend time with my old and new friends, business associates and family. I am especially happy about my Billboard Tribute issue; this is the first time in my career that I have been honored in this way.”
Wish Chaka a Happy Birthday on March 23rd and expect her new CD/DVD album on July 2, “The iKhan Project: Alive! The Commemorative Edition. She’ll also be hosting a series of events in Miami, New York City and Los Angeles. So be on the lookout for both her and her hair.
