Chaka Khan Working on Gospel ProjectPublished by Torrence Glenn on Tuesday, August 28, 2012 at 9:37 pm.
So I just found out that R&B/Funk legend and diva Chaka Khan is working on a Gospel EP to be released in January and if the little birdie who told me is to be trusted (and they are), it’s bound to be good because she’s set to work with some great names in the gospel industry who I think can and will produce the mess out of Chaka Khan. (No, I can’t tell you who!) This wouldn’t be Chaka’s first foray into gospel as she’s been featured on “Precious Is Your name” (Richard Smallwood), “All Around The World” (Andrae Crouch) and even performed a gospel rendition of “Through The Fire” on Celebration Of Gospel 2011 among other appearances. I gotta say I’m pretty excited about this, especially since Chaka’s been in such great voice and appears to be in such good spirits lately. Gospel audiences can be notoriously fickle when mainstream and pop musical acts decide to pursue gospel (and in many instances, rightfully so) so I’m wondering how this will be received, although I’m sure her core fans will love and support it either way. Are you excited about the upcoming Chaka Khan gospel EP?
