After eight years of silence, Chaka Khan has returned with a pledge and a purpose. A brand new single was released, "I Love Myself," addressing the issues of bullying and domestic violence that occur all over the globe.
“It is important that in these troubled times we honor our own self-respect,” says Chaka Kahn. “Beauty knows no boundaries and is accepting of us all whether black, white, gay, straight, physically or mentally-challenged.”
A percentage of the net proceeds from the single will benefit two important organizations – Face Forward and STOMP Out Bullying – chosen for their importance in assisting those who have been the victims of domestic violence and discrimination. Funds will be distributed via The Chaka Khan Foundation, created in 1999, which includes a variety of programs and initiatives that assist women and children at risk. In 2013, the Chaka Khan Foundation combined forces with Community Partners to continue and expand its reach into the community, where it continues to do so.
Look out for the track to release this Friday, February 26th.
