Come join the Delicious Devastating Divas (Ms. Computer Lady and Platinum Queens West) for "YES YOU DO MATTER".

The tributes just keep coming and coming. Go back down memory lane as we this time do something we've done before and had been requested to do.  It's our pleasure to this time honor 2 legendary Divas in the music industry. 

One of them made her entry via broadway and has continued to be mainstay in the music industry--Ms. Stephanie Mills.  She has the soprano voice with a range many would strain to reach.  During her performance in "The Wiz" she is most remembered for the soul-inspiring song "Home."  As a solo artist her infamous songs included "Never Knew Love Like This Before."

The other legend first began has what was not common place during those times as being the female lead singer in an all-male band.  Rufus featuring Chaka Khan was a force to be wreckoned with--especially with a singer who had a "trumpet-sounding like" range that many wanted to imitate but found to better let alone when it came to songs such as "Once You Get Started."

Ms. Khan as a solo artist continued with the awesome vocal range and will always be remembered for such songs such as "Sweet Thing" and "I'm Every Woman."

Were there other hits that were your favorite? Which songs were the ones that brought you to the dance floor each time? What songs were the ones that you didn't mind being played on the radio over and over again back in the day? Stop by and let's see if we can do that for you.
