It’s all love now but last month fans slammed Chaka over her rendition of the national anthem prior to the NBA All-Star Game, with many claiming she failed to hit the right notes.
Khan’s performance was compared to Fergie butchering “The Star Spangled Banner” a couple of years ago and later explaining that she attempted “something special for the NBA”.
One commenter said of Chaka’s uneven rendition at the All-star game in Chicago, “Colin Kaepernick stood up. So he could walk out.”
