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.
