Patti LaBelle was bornon 24 May 1944 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, American, is Singer. Patti LaBelle is a Grammy award winning singer, actress and author who made a name for herself in the entertainment industry. In her five decades of career in the music fraternity, she gave numerous hits as a singer for the band, Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles and also as a solo singer. However, unlike many other talented musicians and singers, LaBelle did not have a smooth start. In fact, her career started with a rocky phase as most of the albums and songs released failed to impress both the public and the critics. It was her song, ‘Lady Marmalade’ that actually established her position as a classic singer. The song peaked at the number 1 status on the Billboard Hot 100. After years of her involvement with a band, she disbanded to start her solo career in 1977. She came up with several albums, each of which exposed her brimming talent and skills and recorded her total sales of over 50 million records. For her outstanding musical abilities, she has been inducted into various Halls of fame, including the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Apollo Hall of Fame, and the Songwriters' Hall of Fame.
