It seems like 2011 was a great year for Chaka Khan, both personally and professionally. We last saw Khan on-the-scene at the American Music Awards, where she expressed her gratitude for all that has transpired this year.

She released a press release stating: "2011 was such a blessing for me. I toured with Prince, received an honor at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, performed in Brazil, honored my good friend Aretha Franklin, and soon I will be performing at the VH1 Celebrates Soul program with my friends Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, Florence + The Machine, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott and many other wonderful performers. I have so many things planned for 2012 and cannot wait to share these exciting projects with my fans! Stay tuned!"
We'll definitely be tuning in!
