Patricia Louise Holte-Edwards, simply known as Patti LaBelle, is a famous American actress, author, singer, and songwriter, as well as a film score composer. In the 1960s, Patti LaBelle was best known as a lead singer of a female group called “Patti LaBelle and the Bluebells”, also known as “LaBelle”. The group, initially consisting of Nona Hendryx, Patti LaBelle, and Sarah Dash, rose to prominence with such hit songs as “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, “Over the Rainbow” and “Down the Aisle”. When their former member Cindy Birdsong left the group and became a part of “The Supremes”, “Patti LaBelle and the Bluebells” changed their name to “LaBelle”, and adopted a different music style, namely glam rock.

Around the same time, the group released the “Nightbirds” album, which featured one of their most popular singles called “Lady Marmalade”. Upon its release, the song topped the music charts and inspired numerous covers, the most notable of which was performed by Lil Kim, Christina Aguilera, Mya, and Pink in 2001. In addition to being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, “Lady Marmalade” was later featured among the “Top 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”, where it placed at #479. “LaBelle” disbanded in 1977, after which most of its members managed to launch successful solo careers. However, more than three decades later, “LaBelle” returned to the music industry with the release of “Back to Now” studio album, which signified a group’s reunion.
