Patti LaBelle with special guest Freddie Jackson
Spend a soulful, romantic Valentine’s weekend with GRAMMY-winning diva Patti LaBelle, an undisputed queen of rock, pop and soul, along with her special guest, longtime R&B hitmaker Freddie Jackson.
Patti LaBelle has spent over 50 years in the music industry and is known around the world for timeless hits like “Lady Marmalade,” “When You Talk About Love,” “New Attitude,” “If You Asked Me To,” and her duet with Michael McDonald, “On My Own.” A two-time GRAMMY winner, a New York Times best-selling author, and a three-time Emmy®-nominated actress, LaBelle infuses everything she does with genuine passion and high energy. On her most recent album, 2017’s Bel Hommage, she lends her distinctive, powerful vocals to a set of jazz covers including “Here’s to Life,” “Don’t Explain,” “Peel Me a Grape,” and “Moody’s Mood.”
“With more than 50 years in show business, Patti LaBelle's career operates like a well-oiled machine,” says The Los Angeles Times. “Wherever she goes and whatever she does, there's no doubt that LaBelle does it her way.” The New York Times credits her live performances with “total show business extravagance” and a delivery that “pushes glamour and emotionality to their limits.”
For this performance, LaBelle welcomes special guest Freddie Jackson, the GRAMMY-nominated R&B song stylist known for sophisticated, romantic ballads. During his four-decade career, Jackson has earned 10 No. 1 singles on the Billboard R&B chart, including durable hits like “Rock Me Tonight,” “Have You Ever Loved Somebody,” “Jam Tonight,” “Do Me Again,” and “You Are My Lady.”
