Taka Boom

Started singing career with sister Chaka Khan in a group called Crystalettes with two other members, Nikki and Finesse,in late 60's. Four years later, joined another vocal group with sister and members Mokaye and Zuri doing african songs. We were the Shades of Black and also did top 40 songs of the era. I also worked with Phil Corahn and the Pharrohs at the Afro Arts Theater in Chicago, up until the early 70's. I embarked on my first solo endeavor with a 7 piece rock band called Sweet Fire. and worked venues mainly on the north side of chicago. Met my first husband, Boom (hence my last name), who was tenor sax and flutist in the band. Stayed together with Sweet Fire for 3/4 years. Got restless and Boom
