The 10-time GRAMMY® Award-winner has the rare ability to sing in seven music genres, including R&B, pop, rock, gospel, country, world music and classical and has influenced generations of recording artists. Affectionately known around the world as Chaka, she is revered by millions of fans as well as her peers for her timeless, classic and unmatched signature music style and ability. The late, great Miles Davis often said, “She [Chaka] sings like my horn.” And the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin says, “[Chaka] is a one- of- a -kind, premier vocalist.” Throughout her legendary career, Chaka has released 22 albums and racked up ten #1 Billboard magazine charted songs, seven RIAA certified gold singles and ten RIAA certified gold and platinum albums. Chaka’s recorded music has produced over 2,000 catalog song placements.
Daphna Ziman, Producer of the CFFAs and President of CINÉMOI, said, “If God had a voice, it would be Chaka Khan’s voice. Chaka Khan’s vocal instrument is unlike any other. Even the most legendary musicians have said that no other singers compare. When it comes to music, Chaka is the definition of iconic, which is why we are honoring her with the 2020 CinéFashion Film Awards Timeless Icon Award.”
Chaka Khan will be joined on the main stage by celebrities, musical guests and award winners from categories such as “Best Fashion Film”, “Best Cinematography”, “Best Fashion Feature Film”, and more.
