Michael McDonald with Chaka Khan

Northern Quest’s stellar summer lineup continues with two artists who emerged from influential bands as true stars. First up is Chaka Khan, who gained notoriety as the powerhouse vocalist for funk group Rufus and later became the Queen of Funk herself. Songs like “Ain’t Nobody,” “I’m Every Woman” and the Prince-penned “I Feel for You” remain undeniable dance jams. Michael McDonald, meanwhile, joined the Doobie Brothers and steered them from straight-up rock to a poppier, more soul-inflected sound, producing inescapable hits like “Takin’ It to the Streets” and “What a Fool Believes.”
