|Chaka Khan singles chronology|
"Through the Fire" is a song from Chaka Khan's sixth studio album, I Feel for You (1984). The David Foster-produced track was the third single from the album and reached #60 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and #15 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts; it was one of the few Khan hits to cross to the Adult Contemporary chart. The music video was filmed at Los Angeles' Union Station.
Foster revealed in his 2011 PBS Concert "The Hit Man Returns" that this was the only melody that he ever wrote with someone in mind and that the working title of the piece was actually called "Chaka" because he was very confident that Khan would perform the song.
