Chaka Khan SOLO ? NO !!!

RUFUS as a GROUP ? YES !!!

Let's not start another Miracles/Smokey fiasco.

Still no FRL page on RUFUS. Only Chaka solo. Neil: Please add a page on RUFUS.
Fortunately, The Rock Hall DID nominate RUFUS as a group WITH Chaka last year. But, no induction. (Why am I NOT surprised ?)

They were nominated as "Rufus with Chaka Khan".

I just love Chaka khan but with out Rufus it seems empty.. I was sad when Joplin make it in but not Big Brother and the Holding Company

Chaka Khan should be nominated and inducted as a solo artist!

I'd like to see both make it in. The group and the soloist. That'd be awesome.

What makes Chaka Khan's chances any better than the chances for Rufus with Chaka Khan? Do you think they will induct Chaka Khan and induct Rufus separately in the same year, but Rufus will get in the Musical Excellence category?

Donna Summer was nominated 5 times before being inducted. Will the same thing happen to Chaka Khan?

I have been a Rufus/Chaka Khan fan as in since they have started this is crazy that they are not nominated as a group!

I agree, I don't think she's done enough as a solo artist to warrant and induction, but as Rufus w/ Chaka Khan definitely! I find it surprising they've only received one nomination

Chaka Khan's Rock Hall page says she's been nominated 3 times. They are counting her nomination with Rufus as the first. This doesn't look good for Rufus. They might not get another nomination. Maybe they'll induct them in the Musical Excellence category the same year that Chaka Khan gets inducted.

She should of been in there long time

Both, Chaka Khan and Janet Jackson got enough votes in 2015 to get nominated again in 2016.

Nominated as…

Rufus With Chaka Khan (2011)
Rufus Featuring Chaka Khan (2017)
Chaka Khan (2015, 2016)
