Chaka Khan Chicago streetThe city of Chicago honored ten-time Grammy award-winning R&B singer Chaka Khan with a street named in her honor in a ceremony on Saturday, July 27th. The influential artist participated in the unveiling of Chaka Khan Way with her mother Sandra Coleman, her sister Tammy McCray, as well as a host of other relatives from the Chicago area. The newly named Chaka Khan Way is located on the west side of Kenwood Academy, where Khan attended high school.

“This is the biggest honor I have ever received in my life,” says Chaka. “The people of Chicago have always loved me and have supported me throughout my career—through thick and thin. To have a street named after you in the third largest city in the country is a big deal. To think that people will say ‘make a right or left turn on Chaka Khan Way’ is mind blowing. Long after I’m gone, and my children and grandchildren are gone, the street named Chaka Khan Way will still be here to carry on my legacy in the city where it all started for me. I never would have imagined that I would have been granted this honor. I thank all the city officials responsible for making this happening—and I especially thank Carl McKenzie, who vigorously campaigned and almost single-handedly made this event a reality.  My family and I thank God for this blessing.”
