Patti LaBelle, otherwise known as the Godmother of Soul, is coming back to the Nashville Schermerhorn for one night only.
LaBelle will make her return to the stunning symphony center on Oct. 29 and the 73-year-old Grammy-winning singer will play hits that span 50 years. It will be a night to remember and it could sell out so set your timer because tickets go on sale this Friday.
The Philadelphia-born songstress began her career as the lead singer of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles in the 1960s. The group got their first hit with “Down the Aisle (The Wedding Song)” in 1963 but “Lady Marmalade” was, by far, their biggest hit.
In 1977, she signed a solo record deal and was no longer the talented frontwoman of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles. Since then, LaBelle has been named one of Rolling Stone‘s 100 Greatest Singers, won two Grammy Awards, been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Hollywood Walk of Fame and gotten so many other honors. She’s had hit songs including “If You Only Knew,” “New Attitude,” “Stir It Up” and “You Are My Friend.”
