*Chaka Khan is doing her diva thang! The soul singing entrepreneur and philanthropist is throwing a yearlong party, celebrating 40 years of music.

The Grammy-award winning singer is gearing up to tour the world, and release a new album to give the fans what they really want – good music.

“I am honored and blessed to celebrate 40 years in music and entertainment,” Chaka said. “I am so humbled by the love, support and gracious spirit of my fans worldwide and the continuous support my peers have shown over the years. Throughout my 40-year career, I have been through the fire a few times over and I’m still here as a living testament to God’s love and grace. Next year, I will be celebrating 40 years in the business and 60 years on earth, which equals one hundred percent Chaka.”

The music isn’t the only thing she’s got for the year.

Look out of the launch of Chakalates, a gourmet chocolate line and Khana Sutra, a fragrance line for everyone.

She’s got more up her sleeve, but you’ve got to stay tuned for the rest.
