She Feels for You
Chaka Kahn headlines Legacy Community Health Services’ Cabaret for a Cure

With construction well underway for its new Montrose-based facility at 1415 California Street, Legacy Community Health Services presents one of the most opulent events on Houston’s social fundraising calendar: Cabaret for a Cure.

Kimberly and Frank DeLape, Brian H. Teichman, and Imperial Sugar’s John C. Sheptor are the honorees at the fourth cabaret event, held annually to raise funds for Legacy Community Health Services. Local television personality Deborah Duncan emcees the evening that is headlined by Grammy Award-winning vocalist Chaka Khan.

A 10-time Grammy Award-winner, Khan has been a staple of the international music scene since the early 1970s. Fresh from her Broadway debut playing Sofia in The Color Purple, her most recent album, Funk This, won Best R&B Album at the 2008 Grammy Awards, with the album’s hit single, “Disrespectful,” a duet featuring Mary J. Blige, winning the statue for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

Cabaret for a Cure also features performances by cabaret singers and musicians from Houston, New York, and Los Angeles, including Sheryl Lee Ralph, Mary Griffin, Riff Raff, Todd Honeycutt, and Tye Blue, with dancing to the Richard Brown Orchestra.

Tickets for the black-tie affair start at $500, with “Tropicana” tables for 10 guests available for $25,000. January 15, 6 p.m. cocktails and silent auction, with dinner and entertainment at 7:30 p.m. followed by dancing. Hilton Americas-Houston, 1600 Lamar St. • legacycommunityhealth.org. —Nancy Ford
