She may be dancing with the stars, but Chaka Khan returned to her roots — singing — for a good cause!
The living legend was joined by Macy Gray — who coincidentally competed on DWTS back in 2009 — for the 6th Annual Face Forward Gala Saturday night.
Face Forward is a charity dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence gain a fresh start and leave the scars of their past behind them by providing pro-bono reconstructive surgery and a community of support. Definitely a worthy cause!

We're glad he's still able to keep his spirits up despite enduring so much tragedy.
And although Krissi was in a coma for nearly six months, she unfortunately succumbed to her health issues and passed away on July 26.
Well, we had seen Bobby out and about with family a number of times since her death, but he finally got back to his musical roots with a surprise onstage appearance on Sunday!
In fact, the 46-year-old singer joined Macy Gray at a concert at the Hollywood Bowl over the weekend, and we're just glad to see him doing what he loves.
Keep up the positivity, Bobby!

Macy Gray sure has a knack for love songs. You remember her 1999 hit I Try, don't you?
But now, she's really changing the game! Instead of crooning over a guy who doesn't reciprocate her feelings, the 47-year-old is singing praises to her vibrator… literally!
Her newest single, B.O.B., AKA "battery-operated-boyfriend," tells the story of a woman in the perfect relationship, because her B.O.B. is "not complicated," as opposed to human men, we're assuming!
In the song, Macy sings "He can go all night, dark until the light/And we stop when I want to," complimenting her vibrator's attention to her needs. LOL!
But the catchy tune is more than just s spoof sex song. The R&B artist wants her single to let women know it's okay to openly talk about their sexuality, saying:
"Guys can just talk about their penises and whatever. Girls always have to be so ladylike about it. I hope girls can start talking…and just say the crudest stuff."
Good point, girl!
And even though the song's subject seems slightly silly, Macy hopes that doesn't detract from people enjoying the track:
"It's going to be so hard to take it seriously, huh? I just hope people take it seriously enough as music. That was always the thing I'm worried about. I hope people listen to it and just love the song."
We understand why she's concerned. The video follows an adorably animated vibrator strutting around the bedroom and office to the bubbly beat of the jazzy tune.
But, it's the perfect balance of cute and crude, and we totally LOVES it! Ch-ch-check out the video (below), but be warned! It's probably NSFW!
Some people wear their gowns on the red carpet and call it a day; others use their garb to send a message to the world at large!
We're of the opinion that it's not a good look to do album promo at such a classy event, but Her Madgesty wasn't the first!
We wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't ask…

Yo ho ho, the pirate life for Johnny Depp!
Apparently the part-time cap'n just can't get enough of the seafaring baddies, because he is teaming with his Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski to release a pirate-themed album!
The double CD, entitled Son of Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys is a follow-up to a similar project from 2006.
But for this one, they are bringing out the big guns. Which we guess would mean cannons?
Courtney Love is even getting in on the action, doing a duet with R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe!
The only thing not on this album is going to be the galley sink!
