fuckyeahfamousblackgirls:  10. Chaka Khan (Every Woman) Men wanted her, women wanted to be her and both were hypnotized by her earth-shattering voice. All through her evolution from funk queen to pop and R&B diva, Chaka Khan has never stopped experimenting with fashion. Born Yvette Marie Stevens on March 23, 1953 in Chicago, Khan rose to fame in the 1970s as the lead singer of funk band Rufus, with hits like “Tell Me Something Good” and “You’ve Got the Love.” It wouldn’t be long before she embarked on a solo career, bringing us timeless hits like “I Feel For You,” “Through the Fire,” and “Ain’t Nobody,” and becoming a beauty and fashion icon, with her signature big hair and eccentric outfits. At 58, Khan is still rocking her luscious locks and confident “Every Woman” attitude.
