WATCH: Chaka Khan Performance Causes Fan Walk Out

Chaka Khan is speaking out following a controversial performance this past weekend during the 13th annual Jazz in the Gardens show. Fans believed the “Sweet Thing” singer was inebriated during her closing set. 

Chaka Khan released the following statement via The Jasmine Brand

“Chaka Khan has been supporting her scheduled show dates as she has been battling the flu for a number of weeks despite the doctor’s orders to cancel these shows and rest. Unfortunately, Chaka not wanting to disappoint her fans has performed, while not totally 100%, and the media has been turning these difficult performances into something else.”

“Chaka values her fans and supporters and would never do anything to jeopardize their support and love. Under doctor’s orders Chaka will be resting for the remainder of the week until her next performance engagement in Macon, GA, Saturday, March 24th.”
