Chaka Khan chosen for Hall of Fame

Chaka Khan will be honoured by Mary J Blige and Patti LaBelle

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.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
