H A P P Y BIRTHDAY CHAKA KHAN!!! Chaka is celebrating 51 yrs. young today. What??? I know that it is cliche, but it is true: "Black Don't Crack", especially when it is taken care of (LOL).
The VOICE, how can I put it in words. Miles Davis described it best, when he said, "her voice is like a horn". I have never seen Chaka or Rufus live, but when she comes back to the Bay Area, I will be there! I don't know about the rest of you, but I can't even imagine what the world be like if Chaka never existed! Thank God for giving us the GIFT, that is Chaka Khan. Oh my God, where do I start, there are so many songs that I love, Maybe Your Baby, Ain't Nothin' But A Maybe,Once You Get Started, Smokin' Room, Your Smile, Pack'd My Bags, Somebody's Watching You,Right Is Right, Please Pardon Me, Stop On By,You Got The Love, I'm A Woman, Ooh I Like Yor Loving, Have A Good Time, Fool's Paradise,Circles,
Sweet Thing, Dance Wit Me,Little Boy Blue, Everybody Has An Aura, At Midnight, Earth Song, Better Days, Hollywood, Magic In Your Eyes, Egyptian Song, Everlasting Love, Stay, Best Of Your Heart, Any Love, Lilah, True Love, Quandary,Jigsaw, Roll Me Through The Rushes, I'm Every Woman, Life Is A Dance, We Got The Love, Papillon Aka (Hot Butterfly), Move Me No Mountain, Clouds, Nothin's Gonna Take You Away,So Naughty, What You Did, Get Ready, Get Set, Night Moods, We Got Each Other, I Know You, I Live You, We Can Work It Out, Watcha' Gonna Do For Me, Any Old Sunday, And The Melody Still Lingers On, Fate
Soul Talkin', All Of Me, Them There Eyes, Take The "A" Train, Love You All My Lifetime, Through The Fire, Signed, Sealed, Delivered, Got To Be There, Come To My House, This Crazy Life Of Mine, Spoon, Betcha' & any other collaborations(Stuff Like That etc.) WHEW! I'm sorry you guys I got carried away. Why doesn't she have a star yet? I just gave all the reasons why she should! I will be having a Rufus/Chaka Khan listening party(on my personal headphones later this morning at work) LOL, shoot naming all those songs has got me fired up and raring to go! Thank you, Chaka Khan for that BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENT!! Oh Yeah, I almost forgot, ARIES PEOPLE ARE SOME OF THE NICEST PEOPLE YOU'D EVER WANT TO KNOW!(smile).

Charise, great tribute, ma, but try "Happy BirthDay Chaka Khan" next time!(smile!) I almost missed giving DIVA her shoutout because I didn't know what I was getting behind this curtain, so to speak...(smile!) You know, this is one mindblowing coincidence that Chaka Khan and Aretha celebrate birthdays just 2 days apart... Yes, I wanna thank them both for blowing their beautiful instruments with so much soul all these years...

I still can't believe that she's 51. She's so young.

Sorry, Isaiah (LOL), I said I got carried away, but I couldn't help myself! I had a Chaka/Rufus listening party on my personal headphones, listening to most of those songs at work on the 23rd (LOL). Music is my greatest addiction. Again, I apologize for making you almost forget what you were going to say!(smile)
