This year’s Hoopla headliner is none other than the 10 Grammy winning, 70 million record selling legend - Chaka Khan!
Chaka career dates back to the disco and funk days of the late '70s peaked by evergreen anthem, “I’m Every Woman”. She had huge success in the 80s with electro-funk love song “Ain’t Nobody” and a UK number one with her cover of Prince’s “I Feel For You” (where she was famously introduced by a rap: ‘Ch-Ch-Chaka Khan!’). Her first album in 12 years - ‘Hello Happiness’ - is out in February which is produced by ex-Major Lazer chap Switch. It's totally fab as singles like the title track and “Like Sugar” attest. Expect a full-on funky disco party with an actual living legend to conclude this year’s festival!
