Ten-time GRAMMY® Award winner Chaka Khan will introduce two of her signature products in the GRAMMY® Gift Lounge today, Thursday, February 7, Friday, February 8, and Saturday, February 9, in conjunction with the 55th Annual GRAMMYAwards® Ceremony on February 10, 2013 in Los Angeles and broadcast on the CBS network from 8:00 p.m. – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). GRAMMYperformers and presenters will be treated to gifts of Chaka's gourmet chocolates, Chakalates, and her Khana Sutra candles. The international music icon and entrepreneur will be in the lounge during GRAMMY Week to meet and gift talent.
Chakalates and Khana Sutra candles are available to the general public online at www.chakakhan.com. Chaka's sweet and sexy gourmet chocolate line is a reflection of the legendary singer, who knows her chocolate. And befitting a chocolate that bears Chaka's name, it's a "sweet thing" for your heart and your soul. Through this relaunch of her chocolate line, which was previously sold exclusively in Neiman Marcus stores around the country, she invites people from around the globe to "eat something good." Chakalates are gourmet delights from Chaka's recipe of antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, with velvety bass notes. It's a quiet storm of flavors and textures, garnered from the four corners of the world. The health-conscious diva, who recently combatted diabetes and high blood pressure by losing 75 pounds and maintaining a healthy lifestyle, lets us know that these 12 sumptuous candies are not as guilty a pleasure as one might expect. Dark chocolate, she notes, is good for our hearts and brains, help lower blood pressure, and, can help control blood sugar. But her chocolates are still candy, so indulge in these sweets in moderation, she advises. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the chocolates will benefit the Chaka Khan Foundation, which supports women and children in crisis.
