ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Oct. 13, 2014) – Legendary R&B vocalist Patti LaBelle, the Grammy-winning powerhouse whose list of classics includes “Lady Marmalade,” “On My Own” and “New Attitude,” will perform at The Mahaffey Theater Sunday, November 16 at 7 p.m.
In a career that’s been in high gear for over four decades, LaBelle made her musical mark with girl-group harmonies (with the Bluebells) and razor-sharp, New Orleans-style funk (with LaBelle). As a solo artist, she is an unparalleled, chart-topping interpreter of soul and gospel ballads and inspirational, uptempo anthems.
A member of the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Apollo Hall of Fame and the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame, LaBelle is also the author of two best-selling autobiographies (Don’t Block the Blessings: Revelations of a Lifetime and Patti’s Pearls) and three cookbooks.
LaBelle’s Broadway credits include Fela! and After Midnight, and she is currently starring on the FX series American Horror Story: Freak Show, as the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character.
