During more than 40 years, Patti LaBelle's strong and soulful voice has left its mark on songs on hit lists all over the world. This year, she has released her album "Timeless Journey," where she really shows all young contenders that she's still among the best R&B singers ever. This Philadelphia born artist got her first hit as early as 1962, but it was with the trio LaBelle that she got the big hit with "Lady Marmalade," which has become one of her best-known songs.
Beautiful, simply does not describe the incomparable force known to the world as Patti LaBelle. As time continues to evolve, the soulful songbird's name has become synonymous with grace, style, elegance and class. Belting out classic rhythm and blues renditions, pop standards, and spiritual sonnets has created the unique platform of versatility that Ms. Patti is known and revered for.
The Philadelphia maven returned to her roots with her latest project, "The Gospel According to Patti LaBelle." "I was born gospel, so it's not like I'm coming back or trying to impress people with this new gospel project. I've always done this. I've never done a whole album. That's the only thing that's missing," observes the songstress. "I've come full circle where you can say it's a complete project."
