The Praise 1300am Family want to salute a powerhouse in the world of music..She cooks,,SANG!! and more….Happy Birthday Patti LaBelle!!!!
Here is a brief bio:
Actress and singer Patti LaBelle is widely regarded as the queen of rock & soul music. She has received acclaim for many of her songs, including “Lady Marmalade,” “When You Talk About Love,” and “New Attitude.” She began her career as part of the Ordettes in 1959, who became The Bluebelles in 1961. Her success as a solo artist started in 1983 when she released her hit album I’m in Love Again.
Going out on the road, the BlueBelles earned national fame at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, where they became “Apollo Sweethearts.” The group also enjoyed modest success with remakes of songs such as “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and their ballad “Down the Aisle (The Wedding Song)” became a top 40 hit. Yet nothing compared to their early success. In 1967, Cindy Birdsong left the group to join forces with Diana Ross and the Supremes. Meanwhile, the remaining members of the BlueBelles tried to pull out of their musical slump.
