The beautiful and soulful Chaka Khan shocked fans and media alike when she revealed that she lost 60 pounds after switching to a vegan diet to combat high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes. Although the soon-to-be sixty-year-old is looking younger than ever these days, she is commemorating 40 years in the entertainment industry by launching a line of candles and chocolates named after her.

She debuted her candy line named ‘Chakalates’ and her candle line named ‘Khana Sutra’ at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night. The items were given away at the Grammy Gift Lounge in Los Angeles. It’s no surprise that 10-time Grammy Award winning artist’s line of chocolates are made from dark chocolate — which help reduce blood pressure and help control blood sugar. Her candles have a nature-inspired fragrance of pine mixed with natural soy wax. “My Chakalates are so delicious,” she told The Huffington Post. “The response has been fantastic. My gourmet chocolates are a perfect treat for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and any other time of the year.” The Chakalates are sold exclusively at Neiman Marcus.

A portion of the proceeds will go to her Chaka Khan Foundation that educates, inspires and empowers children in in the community to achieve their full potential. The organization strives to lessen the achievement gap for underserved students by providing the academic support they need to achieve grade-level proficiency, according to its website. Through the Scholars Building Scholars program, the Foundation partners with the University of Southern California to provide twice weekly tutoring to more than 60 children from South Central Los Angeles.
