Chaka Khan (born March 23, 1953) is the stage name of the American singer Yvette Marie Stevens.

Khan first came to the attention of the music world as the singer of the funk band Rufus in the mid-1970s and with the help of Stevie Wonder, broke into both the pop and R&B charts in 1974 with the hit "Tell Me Something Good". Throughout the 1970's and early 1980's, the band had a number of R&B hits, including "Tell Me Something Good", "Ain't Nobody", "Masterjam", "Sweet Thing", "Do You Love What You Feel?", and "Everlasting Love". In 1978, Khan launched her smash hit "I'm Every Woman". Khan later released her hip-hop based hit, "I Feel for You" off the album of the same name, written by Prince with a harmonica cameo appearance by Stevie Wonder, which launched her recording career back into full gear. Produced by David Foster, the popular ballad "Through the Fire" also reached the top ten. On December 3, 2004, she received an honorary doctorate degree from Berklee College of Music.
