Chaka Khan has gotten her celebrity friends to re-record her track Super Life in honour of slain teenager Trayvon Martin. Grammy Award winner Chaka Khan, who put the project together, hopes the video will send a strong message.
“I really feel strongly about our children, period, and their safety. We’re concerned about children’s safety,” Khan said Monday further advising the video/song is “to raise awareness in children and adults and everybody that you can’t judge a person by what he’s wearing.”
R&B stars Eric Benet, Kelly Price, Kenny Latimore and X Factor‘s Stacy Francis to reimagine the disco queen’s “Super Life,” from Khan’s 2007 album, Funk This.
They were joined by actors Angela Bassett, Terry Crews and Boris Kodjoe for the eight-hour session. All wore identical white T-shirts that said “Super Life — Fear Kills, Love Heals.” It’s available at Chakakhan.com.
