Beautiful, simply does not describe the incomparable force known to the world as Patti LaBelle. As time continues to evolve, the soulful songbirds name has become synonymous with grace, style, elegance and class. Belting out classic rhythm and blues renditions, 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, is the same energy that keeps her fire burning at seventy-seven years young. Each year I grow, and thats 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. Its not about making money because I dont need money, but I need to sing. With a voice or without, Ive got to get on that stage. And the world is thankful that Pattis voice sounds so good to our ears.
