ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (February 9, 2017) — Music icon Patti LaBelle is known for belting out classic rhythm and blues renditions, pop standards and spiritual sonnets. The musical legend will bring her soulful voice to the Tropicana Showroom for a live performance on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 8 p.m.
For more than 50 years, Patti LaBelle’s strong and expressive voice has left an indelible mark all over the world. This Philadelphia-born entertainer captured her first hit in 1962, as lead singer of Patti LaBelle and The BlueBelles. Later with LaBelle and as a solo artist, she went on to release numerous hit songs and albums and capture worldwide acclaim.
A solo artist since the 1970s, Patti has created timeless songs that have garnered numerous honors including GRAMMY Awards, American Music Awards, NAACP Image Awards, New York Times bestsellers and more. From music to film to books, Patti has shown her diversity and broken down barriers as an entertainer and businesswoman, most recently launching a line of products, Patti’s Good Life, and has starred in her own highly rated cooking specials on the Cooking Channel and Food Network.
The same motivation that helped Patricia Louise Holte blossom from choir member to lead vocalist to solo artist is the same energy that keeps her fire burning at seventy-two years young. In addition to being a world-class artist, Patti is just as well known for her philanthropy and humanitarian work. She remains an advocate for diabetes, cancer, HIV/AIDS, adoption, foster care, Big Sisters, United Negro College Fund and many other initiatives.
