Just maybe Prince did not die in vain.

This morning Singer Chaka Kahn is headed for rehab and she says she has Prince to thank for potentially saving her life. And not just her life, her sister’s too.

According to Chaka, Prince’s death has inspired her to enter rehab for what she calls an “addiction to prescription drugs.”

She said the death of her good friend Prince helped hasten her decision to get help. In a statement yesterday the 63 year old Grammy winning singer has been battling an addiction to the same drug that led to Prince’s death, Fentanyl.

Chaka had several concerts scheduled for the summer but had to cancel.

Chaka says, “It’s vital that I put my health and Well Being first”. She knows she is disappointing  some of her fans, but hopes they want her to be well and healthy and more importantly alive.

And it’s not just Chaka going to the rehab, her sister Yvonne Stevens, known as Taka Boom also going with her.
