Patti LaBelle’s Facebook page states: “A diva is someone who is a perfectionist, who does her best in her craft.”  No truer words have been spoken about her. Whatever Patti LaBelle does, she does it with soul: she is a two-time Grammy® Award-winning singer, a New York Times bestselling author, and a three-time Emmy® Award-nominated actress.

Ms. LaBelle is widely regarded as a queen of rock and soul music. She has spent over 50 years in the music industry. She is best known for her hit songs, including the groundbreaking “Lady Marmalade,” as well as “When You Talk About Love,” “New Attitude,” and her duet with Michael McDonald, “On My Own.”

When not performing, Ms. LaBelle is an author and has written several books including her autobiography Don’t Block the Blessings (1997) and LaBelle Cuisine: Recipes to Sing About (1998), a diabetic cookbook. She has starred in stage and screen productions, including roles in the films A Soldier’s Story (1984) and Beverly Hills Cop (1984), an appearance in the Broadway gospel musical Your Arms Too Short to Box with God (1982) with Al Green and a recurring role in the television series A Different World (1990).

Patti LaBelle is also a humanitarian who devotes much of her time and talent to many charities.
