It’s often said that what matters is the singer, not the song, which is why music fans are still moved by Bing Crosby’s rendition of “99 Bottles of Beer.” Savor voices that could sing the phone book with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $25, you get one reserved-seating G-Pass to the Thanksgiving Soul Jam, starring Kem and Chaka Khan, at UIC Pavilion on Saturday, November 26, at 8 p.m. (up to a $59.16 value, including fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Reserved seating is located in row J of sections 204, 205, and 214. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at Will-Call.
The holiday season gets basted in buttery euphony as two of R & B’s biggest stars, Kem and Chaka Khan, unite for the Thanksgiving Soul Jam. A protégé of the Motown sound, Kem’s sovereign voice and inspirational songwriting have garnered acclaim and free-hug coupons from endless acres of fans. From No. 1 hits such as “I Can’t Stop Loving You” to his latest Grammy-nominated album, Intimacy, Kem charms and ministers to audiences in a show filled with faith, love, and silky sonics that exfoliate eardrums.
Shouldering in the soul jam, Chicago’s 10-time Grammy winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee Chaka Khan unleashes her prized pipes to the delight of generations of fans. Frequently referred to as “The Queen of Funk” by the Commonwealth of Groove, Chaka earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with inimitable stage presence and a voice that melts snowmen down to buttons. From million-selling smashes such as “Tell Me Something Good,” “I’m Every Woman,” and “I Feel for You,” Chaka stuffs the Thanksgiving audience with a cornucopia of seductive hits.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
