The PinBoard family rolled by Zavvi down Tottenham Court Road yesterday to watch the legend that is, Chaka Khan do her thang. She was in town promoting her new album “Funk This” and was doing a performance and signing in the massive London store.
She came on about 6.30ish and performed three songs (you can’t be pissed, it’s free and…it’s CHAKA KHAN!). The first two tunes were from the new album and the last was a vintage classic.
It did seem like Ms Khan was attacking the old Crack Pipe again however. She seemed a bit confused to where exactly she was and what the title of her songs were! You’ll see this in the video below. She made us laugh, but while the scary/dorky/weired fans were laughing WITH her, we couldn’t help but laugh AT her! Don’t get me wrong, we weren’t like, heckling the legend, just found it funny how ‘out of it’ she was. HA!
Despite her apparent confusion, her voice was just TOO much! We all know Chaka brings it with her vocals, but God damn! Hearing her live is just a different thing all together. I really can’t remember what the first song she performed was (if anyone was there, holla at us please!)…but I managed to record her second and final song on camera…

^LOL. She. Was. Confused!*
PinBoard Footage: “I’m Every Woman”
^It was so funny watching big grown men singing “I’m Every Woman” HA! She brought it though, ya hear that voice?*
It was a cool [free] performance for sure. We had fun. Of course, she was there to sell albums and boi, did she plug it! But that didn’t convince us to buy it/get it signed though. I’m all for supporting music, but mayne, the family is too broke. After the free sh*t was over, we headed out…
Chaka Khan is legend. Very happy I got to see her.
Peace, Love & Chaka Khan
