Chaka Khan Gets Roasted for National Anthem Rendition During All-Star Performance

Wearing what appeared to be a customized Chicago Bulls top sporting Michael Jordan’s retired No. 23, Chaka Khan offered up some of the vocal riffs and runs that she’s known for. The legendary grammy singer performed the National Anthem Sunday night during the 2020 NBA All-Star game.

But when it comes to “The Star Spangled Banner,” less is sometimes more.
“I adore Chaka Khan,” one person tweeted. “She is a living legend, but I DID NOT like that rendition of the Star Spangled Banner AT ALL. Lord help her.”
Some found the performance reminiscent of singer Fergie’s widely panned rendition during the 2018 All-Star game, which was also dragged on social media.
“I’m a risk taker artistically, but clearly this rendition didn’t strike the intended tone,” Fergie said in a statement at the time. “I love this country and honestly tried my best.” (Cnnwire)
