Chaka didn't always live a glamorous life, at 14-years-old the Black Panthers recruited her. In an interview with The Guardian, she recalled how different her childhood was being part of the organization, she explained:  

"I had my combat boots on, my green khaki pants. I didn't feel in danger – it wasn't like that. We were doing the right thing."

It is reported, for her first big break, Chaka joined another group when she became part of band Rufus in the 1970s until they split in 1983. 

The self-proclaimed "Queen of Funk" started her journey on her solo career with hits like "Ain't Nobody," "I'm Every Woman," and "This Is My Night."

According to Billboard, the success of "This Is My Night" as the follow-up single to her first solo record helped Chaka crossover into R&B after initially emerging as a soul singer.
