about patti labelle


Soul diva Patti LaBelle enjoyed one of the longest-lived careers in contemporary music, notching hits in a variety of sounds ranging from girl group pop to space-age funk to lush ballads. Born Patricia Holt in Philadelphia on May 24, 1944, she grew up singing in a local Baptist choir, and in 1960 teamed with friend Cindy Birdsong to form a group called the Ordettes. A year later, following the additions of vocalists Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash, the group was rechristened the Blue Belles; with producer Bobby Martin at helm, they scored a Top 20 pop and R&B hit in 1962 with the single "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman," subsequently hitting the charts in 1964 with renditions of "Danny Boy" and "You'll Never Walk Alone."

In 2010, LaBelle released a line of products called the "Good Life". The products include hot sauces, relishes, bedding, and other items are set to be added. She appeared on the BET Honors to honor Queen Latifah with a rendition of her hit song "If Only You Knew". She also made appearances on the Monique, Wendy Williams, and also the Andy Cohen hosted, "Watch What Happens Live". She told viewers to expect a new album on Def Jam by the end of 2010. LaBelle also performed a rendition of Prince's "Purple Rain" as tribute to him at the BET Awards.

She is set to make her Broadway debut on September 14 in the award-winning musical Fela! about Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. She will replace Tony Award-nominee Lillias White as Fela's mother, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, and will remain with the production through the end of its run on January 2, 2011
