Patti LaBelle pulled a very special guest up on stage with her last night to sing one of her classics.
Ms. Patti brought the house down at WBLS’ Christmas in the City concert on Friday. While was serving up life with her high notes, shimmery fringe dress, and buckets of personality, she decided to share the spotlight with viral pie critic James Wright Chanel.
James appeared onstage wearing a red leather jacket with a cape of black feathers draped down his back. As if he needed an introduction by now, Patti‘s new friend told the crowd a little about himself before joining Patti’s performance of “Lady Marmalade.” He swept from one side of the stage to the other belting some phenomenal ad libs.
Never let it be said that Patti never gave him anything for that incredible review.
Happy Birthday, Patti LaBelle!
