Chaka Khan thinks that if you need to use Auto-tune as a singer, you should get a job at the Post Office instead.

“There is some great stuff out there and there are some great artists,” the legendary diva told Page Six at the Angel Ball Monday night, “There’s some very fine young artists out there doing great great work that I am impressed with.”
“But the others, they just need to get them a job at the Post Office — they are always hiring!,” she added, “People are using Auto-tune. They need to get to the Post Office quick.”
The singer performed hits like “I’m Every Woman” and “Tell Me Something Good” at the annual fundraiser for Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research. Denise Rich founded the charity to honor her daughter, Gabrielle, who died at the age of 27 from leukemia.
Meanwhile, she said that some of the most talented female artists seem to have very low self-esteem. “I feel very sad. It saddens me deeply that so much… insecurity is present in these girls. They really need to know that they are the gold and that they really are precious.”
Clive Davis also attended the event where Star Jones served as a “paddle raiser.” Investor John Paulson was an honoree at the event at Cipriani Wall Street.
The gala raised $2.8 million.
Oh Chaka…never change.
