Chaka Khan: Through the Fire

Today’s #TBT comes from R&B and soul powerhouse Chaka Khan, who’s been belting out hits for over four decades—and although “Through the Fire” released in 1984, it still inspires spontaneous public sing-alongs to this day. There’ll be a whole lot of that on 3 June 2015 as Chaka Khan kicks off the 37th annual Celebrate Brooklyn! with a free opening night concert at the Prospect Park Bandshell. This year’s festival of music, film, dance and multimedia works is as diverse and accessible as ever; check out the schedule online to see the entire lineup from The New Pornographers to tUnE-yArDs and a smattering of NY-bred talent like Porches. and Luke Temple (of Here We Go Magic) in between.
