Gay Icon Project
In my effort to merge the now-deleted list from the article Gay icon to the Gay icons category, I have added this page to the category. I engaged in this effort as a "human script", adding everyone from the list to the category, bypassing the fact-checking stage. That is what I am relying on you to do. Please check the article Gay icon and make a judgment as to whether this person or group fits the category. By distributing this task from the regular editors of one article to the regular editors of several articles, I believe that the task of fact-checking this information can be expedited. Thank you very much. Philwelch 21:02, 24 Mar 2005 (UTC)
Chaka Khan in other songs
Is it just me or does the lyric "Chaka Khan...Ch-ch-ch-ch-Chaka Khan" from I feel for you turn up other places. An example is on Gorillaz Demon Days album on the song Feel Good Inc. in the background at the beginning behind the "feel good" lyric. I belive Mike Myers says that lyric in one of the austin powers movies as well. Anyone agree? Should that be added to the article?-Ravedave 02:58, 18 September 2005 (UTC)
Also, Catherine Tate references the song a lot in her show, when she sings the main chorus to get out of sticky situations.
- A cultural references section would be worthwhile. She is also referenced in an episode of The Simpsons, as well as the song La mia banda suona il rap by Flaminio Maphia. --NEMT 20:26, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
In addition, Chaka Kahn, along with Ashford & Simson, was a lead vocal on Quincy Jones' 1978 R & B hit "Stuff Like That". It was the lead song on the Jones' album: Sounds....And Stuff Like That. —Preceding unsigned comment added by MTBZWAY (talk • contribs) 18:35, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Chaka Khan Early Life
I think she attended Kenwood High School in Chicago in the late 1960's. I saw her (in pre-Chaka days) watching a track meet there but I don't have independent corroboration and she could have just been visiting. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:44, 24 March 2008 (UTC) Les
Article states: "Raised initially as Roman Catholic by her parents, she'd eventually convert to Christianity later in her life..." Statement should be clarified because Roman Catholicism is a form of Christianity. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 06:06, 21 August 2010 (UTC)
Someone please check this line? It was listed as on the same date as a television performance. Also, I edit this page for a little better structure, someone else had said that this article lacks information on Khan's parents. Umma Kynes 23:17, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm a huge Chaka fan, but I know for a fact that she has sold nowhere near 200 million records. Where did that total come from? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gdoggatl (talk • contribs) 14:50, 12 April 2014 (UTC)
Exactly how is she American-British?
There is part of chapter in the section 'Personal life': In 1990, Khan emigrated to the United Kingdom where she had a steady relationship. She splits her time between Los Angeles, Germany and London but has been living mainly in London since 2006.
Start would mean that she went to live in UK 1990, but then is said that she's only been 'living mainly' there since 2006. And what is this Germany thing? Shouldn't it then be American-British-German? What is the source for this? Can't see any. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 01:45, 16 May 2011 (UTC)
