Let’s simply go on forward and get this out of the manner. Chaka Khan is a legend. That truth can’t be disputed. However, in the age of social media, even legends are impervious to the scrutiny that comes from Twitter.
And let’s simply say … Chaka Khan’s rendition of the nationwide anthem, which she carried out at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago Sunday evening (Feb. 16), sparked hella Twitter reactions, however not in a great way.
Anyone who takes on the process of singing the nationwide anthem of the United States at a stay, internationally televised occasion already has an enormous weight on their shoulders, and whereas most American singers make the music “their own,” many felt as if Chaka Khan was doing manner an excessive amount of.
In truth, most would say that Chaka Khan’s model of the “Star-Spangled Banner” rivaled Fergie’s again in 2018 … and that’s removed from a praise.
Watch her efficiency right here:
