At this year's Taste of Chicago, fans can get close to the music with tickets for the Petrillo Music Shell seating area offered exclusively through Groupon. Fresh from stealing the show on the season finale of American Idol, 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, Chaka earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame with inimitable stage presence and a voice that melts snowmen down to buttons. On stage, she performs everything from million-selling smashes such as “Tell Me Something Good” and “I’m Every Woman” to tracks from her Grammy-winning 2007 album, Funk This, with exuberance radiating from every flash of her irrepressible grin and each toss of her leonine locks.
Fellow Grammy winner, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Raphael Saadiq reaches back beyond the early-'90s R&B sound he helped shape in Tony! Toni! Toné! to the Motown era in his solo work. Sinuous organ lines, guitar jangle, and a moody vocal delivery that seems to arrive through layers of cigarette smoke and low nightclub light combine in songs from his critically acclaimed album Stone Rollin’.
