A number of ground-breaking women are being honored by Variety at the 2019 Power of Women Luncheon and Chaka Khan is one of them.
The iconic artist will be among other star females who've dedicated their careers and lives to making a positive impact on the world. During a time where women have been devalued or unappreciated, it's a beautiful way of acknowledging the strength within to make a phenomenal difference.
Chaka Khan, in particular, will be recognized for her work with Little Kids Rock, an organization fashioned to restore and expand musical education in schools. Editor-In-Chief Claudia Eller stated:
“Since its inception,Variety’s Power of Women has been a celebration of female empowerment, philanthropy and the commitment to progress being made by the professionals of our industry every day. We are so proud that the event continues on as a beacon of positivity in these challenging times.”
Six hundred guests are scheduled to attend the October 11th event. Jennifer Aniston, Awkwafina, Mariah Carey, Brie Larson and Dana Walden will also be receiving honors for their work in the community.
