Grammy-winning R&B diva Patti LaBelle has blown audiences away ever since she and her '70s group Labelle belted out "Lady Marmalade." Since then, the powerhouse performer has piled up accolades for a songbook that includes "New Attitude," "If You Asked Me To" and "If Only You Knew." Her soaring voice has graced the halls of the Apollo Theater, the Metropolitan Opera House and the White House. LaBelle's current tour finds her touching on classic tracks and revisiting her gospel music roots. R&B singer Lyfe Jennings ("Must Be Nice," "Cry") starts off the evening with heartfelt songs about his hard-knock life. Learn More
