earliest years were spent much like
those of her musical
contemporaries singing in church.
Patti LaBelle has been dishing out
popular R&B pop tunes for close
to forty years, accumulating gold
records, fame, fans and wealth in
the process. From her early days
as part of her self-titled soul-group
LaBelle, to her departure to pursue
a solo career. Patti has remained
as visible, and as talented, as her
first day on the scene.
In addition to musical prowess, Patti
LaBelle has proven that she is neither
a theatrical, movie or television
lightweight. Her credit s include
television s Emmy-Award winning
Motown Salutes The Apollo and the
long-running A Different World; the
silver screen s A Soldier’s Story,
Broadway’s Your Arms Too Short To
Box With God and the musical House
of Flowers. Perhaps best known for
her more than 40- year career in the
entertainment industry, Patti LaBelle
is also a dedicated social servant.
Patti has worked on behalf of such
causes as cancer and AIDS

humanitarian. She is a true believer
in who she is and what she ventures
into, which is a testimonial to her
abilities, and her dedication.
