Prayers are needed for Chaka Khan & her family during this time.
After cancelling her California State Fair appearance this week, the R&B Icon has checked herself into rehab.
Chaka’s representatives say she has struggled with an addiction to pain medication and has “voluntarily entered the program to get healthy and stay that way.”
Fair spokeswoman Adrenna Alkhas announced that Jody Watley and Shalamar will replace Chaka.
“We are extremely disappointed Chaka Khan canceled because we knew how much the community was looking forward to it, yet at the same time we wish her the best in her health and full recovery,” Alkhas said in a statement. “We are very excited to announce that Jody Watley and Shalamar will be replacing her. They will bring a high-energy performance that our guests will love.”
Praying that Chaka receives all the help that she needs to get well.
