I knew vaguely in the back of my mind that Patti Labelle had come from a girl group but when I began to research these ladies I found so much more. The group Labelle were trendsetters in fashion, music and politics. I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with each of them about their musical influences and complex lives. Then guess what? Patti Labelle told me that I was "a good interviewer!!" And then she said that our "conversation was very uplifting." What, I ask you, can be better than that? Thanks Aunt Patti.
Our lesson from Labelle? Don't be afraid of innovation and you are never to old to live your dreams. At 65 these ladies are on and poppin' and not afraid to work with true musical mavericks (let's reclaim the word) like Lenny Kravitz and Wyclef Jean. Thank you Sarah Dash, Nona "Style Diva" Hendryx and Patti Labelle.
