In the midst of new album releases, a second season of her acclaimed Cooking Channel show, and even a leading role in this year’s Macy’s Day Parade, it’s extraordinary that singer Patti LaBelle has time to embark on a national tour. Thankfully the legendary artist has no intention of stopping her momentum. Two-time Grammy® Award-winning singer, New York Times bestselling author, and three-time Emmy® Award-nominated actress, Patti LaBelle will perform at DPAC on Friday, March 23, 2018.
Just last month, the GRAMMY® Award-winner and GPE Records recording artist announced the release of Patti LaBelle and Friends – Home for the Holidays. Available on CD, as well as digital and streaming outlets, the album will be released on Friday, November 24, 2017.
The fourteen-song collection features LaBelle along with fellow acclaimed artists, Vivian Green (“My Favorite Things”), Ruben Studdard (“Let It Snow”), Tamela Mann (“Jesus King!”) and piano virtuoso, Jamar Jones (“Brazilian Sleigh Bells”). Other traditional holiday and spiritual songs lace the album, including “Mary, Did You Know?” “The Christmas Song” and “Avé Maria”. Patti LaBelle and Friends – Home for the Holidays is LaBelle’s first holiday album since the 2007 release, Miss Patti’s Christmas.
In addition to the new album, LaBelle is still promoting her first jazz album, Bel Hommage, which launched in May 2017. The second season of her cooking show, Patti LaBelle’s Place, will return on the Cooking Channel on November 26th. In addition, her successful Patti’s Good Life line, which is available at Walmart, will be introducing new items just in time for the holidays.
In addition to her amazing career as an entertainer and entrepreneurial success, Ms. LaBelle’s work as a humanitarian is just as legendary. She remains an advocate for adoption, foster care, Big Sisters and the United Negro College Fund, among many other initiatives. While Ms. LaBelle’s celebrated 50-plus year career is respected world-wide, she has also endured and survived personal strife. Within a 10-year period, she lost her mother, three sisters and best friend to diabetes and cancer. In 1994, LaBelle was diagnosed with diabetes and shortly thereafter became a spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association.
