Chaka Khan is to be inducted into the Apollo Theatre's hall of fame in the US.

Patti LaBelle and Mary J Blige will perform in honour of the RnB star at the theatre's June 10 New York gala.

The annual event raises funds for the Apollo's education and community outreach programmes.

Chaka and Mary J received a Grammy Award together in 2008 for Disrespectful.

Singer-songwriter Lionel Richie and the late Etta James were inducted last year into the Apollo Legends Hall of Fame.

Other previous inductees include LaBelle, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin, to name just a few.

Sarah Jessica Parker will present this year's corporate award to Time Warner Inc.
