“My Funny Valentine” is a show tune from the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart musical Babes in Arms in which it was introduced by former child star Mitzi Green. The song became a popular jazz standard, appearing on over 1300 albums performed by over 600 artists. One of them was Chet Baker, for whom it became his signature song.
In 2015, it was announced that the Gerry Mulligan quartet featuring Chet Baker’s version of the song was inducted into the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry for the song’s “cultural, artistic and/or historical significance to American society and the nation’s audio legacy”. Mulligan also recorded the song with his Concert Jazz Band in 1960.
Chaka Kahn gives her provocative version of love and pours it sweetly on every musical note. Enjoy!

I have not heard her version. This happens to me quite often-I don’t think the Youtube link is working.
Now fixed and working our apology. Chaka sings My Funny Valentine well. ❤️
