Chaka’s got her sexy back! The music icon dropped 60 pounds recently and showed it all off while performing at a few events this weekend. The pics above and below are from her recent appearance at the first annual International Jazz Day event at the UnitedNations in New York City.
The ten-time GRAMMY Award-winner also joined David Foster and Friends at the Kennedy Center Spring Gala in Washington, D.C. on Sunday to raise money for arts education. The evening before, Chaka worked it out for a sold-out crowd at the historic Howard Theatre.
The petite & curvy legend sang her signature classic hits…and looked damn good while doing it:
By the way, Chaka’s been free of alcohol and drug use for eight years now. She says she lost the 60 pounds after committing to diet and lifestyle changes. Now she’s free of both high blood pressure and diabetes.
