Chaka Khan enters rehab for pain med addiction

Grammy award winning R&B singer Chaka Khan is canceling her July performances in order to focus on her health, according to her website.

The 63-year-old singer will enter into a drug rehabilitation program.
"Chaka has struggled with a dependence on prescription pain medications and has voluntarily entered the program to get healthy and stay that way," a message to fans on Khan's website said Sunday.
She became a household name and was propelled to stardom from the song "I Feel For You," written and first performed by Prince.
Khan is expected to perform in Atlanta; Atlantic City, New Jersey; Grand Prairie, Texas; and St. Louis starting August 5.
She should be back with a microphone in her hands very soon, as "doctors have urged her to resume recording mid-July and commence all performances beginning August 1st and onward," the statement said.
CNN has reached out to Khan's publicist for more information.

I guess she and Prince shared more than music. His death must have woken her up.

I wish her well. Saw her perform last in one of Prince's Welcome 2 America concerts in L.A.
