Chaka Khan has been forced to cancel four tour dates in June due to her doctor's instructions. The legendary singer was directed to rest her vocal chords for several weeks before she can hit the stage for shows in July. The concert dates that she withdrew from are The Capital Jazz Festival, Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival, Columbus Symphony Orchestra, and Joni: A Portrait in Song.
During Black Music month, Khan will be inducted into the Apollo Theater Hall of Fame at its 8th Annual Spring Gala Benefit. Patti Labelle, Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige and Deborah will honor Khan with a presentation and performance.
Khan also plans to release, The iKhan Project: Alive album, to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of her entertainment career. The multi-genre album is tentatively scheduled to be available for purchase in the fall.
