Chaka Khan

Suffice to say, Chaka Khan went and pissed off a whole bunch of money paying concert goers in South Florida Saturday night March 17, 2018 and now she’s being blasted all over social media for possibly being high, drunk, or whatever. The result was a show so unsatisfying, people started walking out on her and had no problem saying so.

The “Sweet Thing” singer’s sour-ness went down in front of the crowd at the 13th annual Jazz in the Gardens show. Besides Chaka, this year’s lineup featured Anita Baker, Fantasia, Smokey Robinson, and more. And of course, with Chaka Khan being a legendary star, there was a lot of anticipation for her performance.

However, according folks on the scene, fans were left upset, shocked and even concerned after her performance which featured instances of her forgetting the words to her classic hits, seeming disinterested, relying on background singers to sing her lead vocals, dancing bizarrely, and more.

With that backdrop, it should come as no surprise that there is serious backlash on Twitter, with critics weighing in on her set and some even wielding accusations of drug or alcohol abuse.

Here’s a taste of what people are not happy with:

Here’s what the paying customers had to say:

It’s worth noting that in the wake of Chaka Khan’s rough outing, some local reports indicate she was not feeling well and was hospitalized shortly after the performance, according to ThatGrapevine.

  1. I am one of Chaka Khan’s greatest fans and history has shown me that she is one of the greatest studio artist. Her live work is not as good. I love her.

  2. Deja vu. In 1975 I went to see her in Durham, NC with my friends for a Senior Trip and she was so high, she was nodding and the band (Rufus) had to hold her up, and eventually carry her out…she still owes me money!!! Hopefully she’s not doing that anymore and it was just exhaustion or something.

    I’ll wait. These legends are getting older. She might need to take medication or sheer exhaustion. They think they’re still in their prime and you have to remind them to get rest, stay hydrated, and eat healthy. I think her true fans will give her the benefit of the doubt, give her a pass and pray that she is okay. Chaka, Chaka Khan – I’m still in love with you.

    Careful with the criticism. Remember, people were so quick to jump all over David Cassidy. Accused him of being drunk or high. Later, found out he had dementia. I hope Chaka Khan is okay. In any case, her band and background singers are great!
