Living Legends Chaka Khan & Stephanie Mills Served Up An R&B Divas VERZUZ Battle For The People

​ ​ ​ ​


R&B Divas Chaka Khan and Stephanie Mills hit the stage to battle it out for VERZUZ, giving us an evening with R&B royalty just in time for the holidays. And it was...interesting. Watch the living legends go hit-for-hit inside…



Last night's VERZUZ Battle was a celebration of GOOD music and the strength of sisterhood between two of music’s classic soul singers, which was the perfect way to usher in the holiday season.

Living legends Chaka Khan and Stephanie Mills joined forces on stage at at The Theatre inside the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles for an epic VERZUZ Battle. Before the ladies made their grand entrance, fans enjoyed a set from DJ Beverly Bond, the founder of Black Girls Rock!. Then, there was a DJ battle between DJ Ease and DJ Ash B, however, folks weren’t really feeling it.







An hour later (with a few technical difficulties), the show began. Decked out in all black, Chaka and Stephanie hit the stage hand-in-hand.

There were more technical difficulties that prevented Stephanie’s first track from playing, but that didn’t stop the show. Stephanie quickly launched an impromptu a cappella version of “Ease On Down The Road," sounding just as good (if not better) than when she belted out the track on Broadway's "The Wiz."

The divas served up live vocals and some fancy footwork for an entertaining melody of their hits. However, some fans believe Chaka may have had one too many Ciroc drinks. Let’s just say, Chaka wasn’t hitting all of her notes or standing up real sturdy, and the fans noticed.













On the flip side, Stephanie Mills delivered like no other. She slayed “Feel The Fire,” which also features the late Teddy Pendergrass. Peep a clip below:



Not only did she slay her own vocals, she hyped up Chaka and helped her sing her classic hits. The true definition of a real one.





At one point during the battle, Chaka made it clear she doesn’t “work/sing for Grammys.” She sings for love. Peep the clip below:



For some fun, Stephanie Mills invited her friend/actress Holly Robinson Pete and brought her out on stage to perform with her and Chaka:





Fun times.

At the end of the show, Ms. Mills told everyone goodnight…meanwhile Chaka was just ready TAH GO!




After wrapping up the battle, Stephanie said she’s planning on hitting the road with Chaka Khan, so get ready:



Listen, maybe Chaka didn’t give her fans exactly what they were expecting, but it was still a FAB night of giving flowers to our living legends.
