Chaka Khan plans on touring internationally later this year with producer David Foster while awaiting her newest album’s release on her next birthday, March 23. Khan has recently opened up about her weight loss and new music. “My weight loss had to occur, because I was diagnosed with Type-2 Diabetes and I also had high blood pressure,” she said. “What I did was stopped eating and went on a strict unconditional fast for a couple of months. And went off meat, became vegan, stopped all the dairy, stopped all the meat.” The Huffington Post reports:
Nearly 40 years after entering the music business, Chaka Khan is still “Every Woman” as she continues to illuminate the lives of others through her music and philanthropic efforts.
With hopes of releasing her newest music project on her next birthday (March 23), the 10-time Grammy Award-winning singer is steadily busy as she prepares to embark on an international tour with super-producer David Foster later this year, in addition to appearing at the upcomingEssence Music Festival where she will be on hand to honor local New Orleans women, through her Chaka Khan Foundation, for their life changing achievements post-Hurricane Katrina.
