Beautiful simply does not describe the incomparable force known to the world as Patti LaBelle. Over a distinguished career, the soulful songbird’s name has become synonymous with grace, style, elegance, and class. Belting out classic rhythm and blues, pop standards, and spiritual sonnets have created the unique platform of versatility that she is known and revered for. The same motivation that had Patricia Louise Holte blossom from a choir member to lead vocalist for Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles and later Labelle, to a solo artist, is the same energy that keeps her fire burning at seventy-seven years young. “Each year I grow, and that’s a blessing from God. I do what I can do. I do what I feel God has given me the energy to do, so I just go out there and I do it…it’s not about making money because I don’t need money, but I need to sing. With a voice or without, I’ve got to get on that stage.” And the world is thankful that Patti’s voice sounds so good to our ears.
