This is very powerful.

The singer released a statement to the Associated Press on Sunday, saying she is canceling concert appearances all summer in order to get her health in order (below):

"Unfortunately, I will miss concert appearances over the summer. However, it's vital that I put my health and well-being first. I know that I am disappointing some of my fans, but I also know they would want me to recover and be well and healthy."

And while she is entering the program with her sister, Yvonne Stevens (also known as Taka Boom), Chaka Khan was very clear about the inspiration behind her decision:

"The tragic death of Prince has had us both rethinking and reevaluating our lives and priorities. We knew it was time to take action to save our lives. My sister and I would like to thank everyone for their support, love and prayers."

Wow.

Here's to Khan going through the process to greatly improve her health — we certainly wish her the best.
