Patti LaBelle has been largely compared to Aretha Franklin during the 1970s, but her distinguishing vocal range remains unique and recognizable, and she is widely regarded as one of the greatest vocalists of all-time by such industry publications and media outlets as Jet Magazine, BET and VH1.
In 1962, Patti LaBelle was part of the group Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles. They scored their first Top 40 pop hit with the release of the doo-wop single, "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman". In 1966, the group signed to Atlantic Records and scored what later became Patti LaBelle's signature song with their version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".
In 1970, Patti LaBelle and the band moved to England for a year and came out with a different name - simply Labelle - and a new attitude, vocal style and wardrobe. In 1974, they released their greatest record, Nightbirds, featuring their breakout hit, "Lady Marmalade", which hit #1 on the Hot 100 in 1975, helping Nightbirds to go platinum.
In 1976, LaBelle disbanded and Patti LaBelle, now 33, released her self-titled debut solo album in 1977 on Epic Records, where she recorded 3 more albums in the years to come. The debut album became an important hit for Patti LaBelle at least on the R&B charts and was notable for the stand-out ballad, "You Are My Friend" and for the funkier "Joy To Have Your Love", which demonstrates her large range with a typical Philadelphia Soul orchestrated arrangement with heavy bass.
More recently, Patti LaBelle's popularity would be heard loud and clear on younger artists' covers of her legendary songs including "Lady Marmalade" as covered by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Pink and Mya on the soundtrack of Moulin Rouge!. The cover verision of the song became a #1 hit all over again 26 years after the original. In 2006, Patti LaBelle continues to tour and record new music.
