Throwback Thursday Tribute
Before the Lady Gaga’s, Fantasia’s, Adele’s, and Beyonce’ of the world, there was the unparalleled voice and fashion envelope pusher known as the one and only Patti Labelle! This Throwback Thursday is dedicated to the woman who made a song about a hoer entitled “Lady Marmalade” a catchy tune people rocked to.
Patti‘s soulful voice is one like no other. Although many try to emulate, there is only one originator with a vocal range that will make the hairs on your neck stand!
This lady is the QUEEN of drag. Although her style has evolved with her throughout the years, in the beginning days of her is where you would find the creation of wild style statements and BIG hair!
The Philly born diva has won many awards from Grammy’s to American Music Awards and has been recognized for her 50+ years in music through Lifetime Achievement, Living Legend and even Walk a Fame Awards just to name a few.
Patti has been called one of the pioneers of disco movement and has influenced many artists in owning originality and creativity. She is known throughout the music industry as “Momma Patti” for her amazing advice she shares to young artist.
Labelle started her career in a female group that included Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash and this is where Lady Marmalade was created. The song is still a hit today and even had a remake that included Christina Aguilera, Pink, Mya, Lil Kim and Missy Elliot. The performance for the 44th Grammy’s was epic! These ladies brought out the lovely Patti Labelle and killed it!! I still enjoy watching this from time to time.
Although Patti Labelle is known for her singing talent, she has also done acting on film and television which is where she even starred in her own sitcom named Living It Up With Patti LaBelle.
Thank you Ms Patti Labelle for not only your musical talent but your presence. You are a headliner, Diva, originator, Icon and Living Legend.
