Her daughter Milini Khan was a member of the group, Pretty In Pink.
Went solo in 1978 and later rejoined Rufus in 1983. During the brief reunion, they recorded the album "Rufus and Chaka Khan Live! Stompin' at the Savoy" which included the top ten hit "Ain't Nobody."

Ranked #17 on VH1's 100 Greatest Women of Rock N Roll
Sister of Kathleen Burrell and Tammy McCrary (who is her manager).
Friend of Natalie Cole.
Duetted with Robert Palmer when he was recording future hit "Addicted to Love". Even though Palmer was thrilled with the collaborative end product, Khan's vocals had to be erased from the master tape due to the fact that she had two other singles on release at the same time (conflict of interest issues). When "Addicted to Love" topped the American charts in May 1986, it did so without Khan's vocals, though she did receive a vocal arrangement credit for her efforts.
She acquired the name Chaka Khan when she joined the Black Panther Party.
[on being called a "diva", 2007] We looked it up in the dictionary. A diva is a distinguished singer, but she's also a chick who throws a fit because she believes the hype. I don't really care, though. I get more pissed about the kind of chicks that pass for divas these days.
