A Night with Chaka Khan

wpid7262-IMG_1660.jpgDuring my teenage years, I was introduced to an artist who I had not heard of before.  Chaka Khan brought something I had never heard before.  I can credit a friend of the family for first playing me some of her music.  Along with many others, I became a fan.  Not a devoted fan but someone who really enjoyed her music.  However, I never saw her perform.  That changed this week.
