Timeless R&B hits with Chaka Khan and El DeBarge!
One of the reigning divas of R&B, Chaka Khan (“I Feel for You,” “Through the Fire,” “I’m Every Woman,” “Ain’t Nobody”) returns to NJPAC’s Prudential Hall, this time with fellow R&B hitmaker El DeBarge (“All This Love,” “Rhythm of the Night”).
From the moment she burst onto the music scene in the 1970s as the 18-year-old lead singer of the classic funk-rock band Rufus, Chaka Khan’s powerful voice and sensual, show-stopping stage presence set her apart from her peers. Throughout her solo career, she has lent her distinctive vocal style to a multitude of music genres, including R&B, jazz, pop, rock, gospel, country, classical and dance music. A 10-time GRAMMY Award winner, Khan has racked up sales of over 75 million records worldwide, and has earned 10 No. 1 hits on the Billboard charts.
This R&B double bill also welcomes multiple GRAMMY Award nominee El DeBarge. As lead singer of the family group DeBarge and later as a solo artist, El DeBarge helped to define the soulful R&B sound of the 1980s and beyond. Long known for his high tenor register and strong falsetto, his is the voice behind hits like “Time Will Reveal,” “All This Love,” “Love Always,” and his signature tune, “Rhythm of the Night.”
