My favorite line of hers: "well, at 61, i haven't taken the fish trip so i don't think it's gonna happen now." Or something like that.

Oh and she killed it as Dwayne Wayne's mother on "A Different World".

This is a great Patti pic.

Love me some Labelle. I'm still reeling after an awesome Bette Midlar concert I saw years ago. I was only 12 at the time, but I love her so.

I've seen her too.

ABout 15 years ago, outside concert in the round in Toronto.

Was amazing!

Such pipes, such presence, and what a great stage presence and interaction with the audience. Would love to see her again!

Oh, she is the BEST! I saw her at Chastain Ampitheatre here in Atlanta a couple years ago. It was hot, humid and sticky outside, but Ms. LaBelle TURNED THAT MUTHA OUT!!

Kicked off her pumps and dang near sweated through her dress. A true, true performer and professional.

I think my most favorite song of her is "If You Ask Me Too" from her album Be Yourself. (Before Celine Dion re-did it. What was Celine thinking she could top that?)

Must have been a blast to see her live. She has so much energy in her recored music, I can't imagine what it must feel like to be right there with her.
