Live Music, Talks Plus

Chaka Khan

When: Thu., Jan. 28, 8 p.m. 2016

Considering this event is billed as “An Evening of Music and Conversation,” we spent an inordinate amount of time attempting to avoid a bad joke imploring Ms. Khan to “Tell Me Something Good.” An effort we felt unnecessary after seeing a few of the actual products the singer/entrepreneur has been hawking as of late, including gourmet Chakalates and the scented Khana Sutra candle. Between that goofy sense of humor, her humanitarian efforts and her storied history in the music business beginning with ’70s funk heavy hitters Rufus, this might well be the rare one of these “Evening withs” where the conversation is at least as enjoyable as hearing Khan perform hits like “I’m Every Woman” and Prince cover “I Feel for You.”
