Chaka was scheduled to play a show at the Stanislaus County Fair on July 13, but the performance, along with the rest of her dates in July, have been canceled.

“We are extremely disappointed Chaka Khan canceled because we knew how much the community was looking forward to it, yet at the same time we wish her the best in her health and full recovery,” a rep for the county fair said in a statement. “We are very excited to announce that Jody Watley and Shalamar will be replacing her. They will bring a high-energy performance that our guests will love.”
