Let’s just go on ahead and get this out of the way. Chaka Khan is a legend. That fact cannot be disputed. However, in the age of social media, even legends are impervious to the scrutiny that comes from Twitter.

And let’s just say … Chaka Khan’s rendition of the national anthem, which she performed at the 2020 NBA All-Star Game in Chicago Sunday night (Feb. 16), sparked hella Twitter reactions, but not in a good way.

Anyone who takes on the task of singing the national anthem of the United States at a live, internationally televised event already has a huge weight on their shoulders, and while most American singers make the song “their own,” many felt as though Chaka Khan was doing way too much.

In fact, most would say that Chaka Khan’s version of the “Star-Spangled Banner” rivaled Fergie’s back in 2018 … and that’s far from a compliment.

Watch her performance here:
