Chaka Khan is trying to get her flowers while she’s still alive.
The Queen Of Funk told HipHollywood exclusively she’s currently working on a biopic about her life and career.
Chaka didn’t reveal who will play her but did tell us her daughter Indira (who is also a singer) will be involved.
“I am working on it, and I’ve already got my daughter lined up she is a carbon copy of me, a mini me and she’d play me in some aspects of my life,” she explained.
We did ask what she thought about Melanie Fiona portraying her in the BET series American Soul. For some reason we get the feeling she wasn’t impressed.
“She just sang a song, that’s very different than doing my life story,” she said.
Chaka is however sharing her awesome vocals with the world in the new Disney animated film The One and Only Ivan. Chaka voices the character of Henrietta the Chicken and you can best believe she brings the funk!
“Danny DeVito was in the studio with me, he’s a wonderful man,” explained Khan of the process filming. “I love that guy, he’s good people. We were trying to find out if I should change my voice or talk like a chicken and finally we were like Chaka just talk like yourself.”
“From there on it was a piece of cake,” she added.
The One And Only Ivan also starring Bryan Cranston, Angelina Jolie, Danny DeVito, Ron Funches and more is on Disney+ now.
