Today on ‘Tickets @ 2’ we’re featuring “Tell Me Something Good” by Rufus.
The hit was written by Stevie Wonder and recorded it himself on December 13, 1973 – he copyrighted it on January 3, 1974. His version was never released, as he gave it to Rufus, since Stevie was a fan of their lead singer, Chaka Khan.
Rufus evolved from a group called The American Breed, who had a hit with “Bend Me, Shape Me.”
This was the first and only hit credited to Rufus. Since her powerful vocals were clearly the focus of the group, they became known as Rufus featuring Chaka Khan.
When we play it between two and three we’ll take lucky caller #13 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see “Flashdance – The Musical” coming to the Segerstrom Center for The Arts May 7th through the 19th.
