POU Weekly Health Thread: Go Chaka!

Look at the svelte Chaka Khan!

If you’re a fan of Chaka Khan, you remember when she first hit the stage as a teenager and would wear just a loin cloth top and pants that resembled leather chaps along with her trademark feathers. The latest sighting of the singer was reminiscent of that time in her career.

Chaka took to the stage at the Howard theater in Washington D.C., Saturday May 5, and the crowd was overwhelmingly pleased with her voice, but amazed at her beautiful new, but old, look. The soulful legend also performed at a fundraiser for arts education on Sunday May 6, during the David Foster and Friends at the Kennedy Center Spring Gala.

Free of alcohol and drug use for eight years now, Chaka, in recent years, also struggled with her weight and was diagnosed with diabetes and high blood pressure. Determined to get healthy, she committed to diet and lifestyle changes. She has lost over 60 pounds and is now free of both high blood pressure and diabetes.

    Chaka was such an exotically beautiful young woman and she’s still gorgeous today. My favorite female singer of all time! A lot of people do say Nicki Minaj looks like Chaka and I tend to disagree, mainly because I detest Nicki Minaj.
