Sophisticate’s Black Hair goes beyond beauty to turn the spotlight on inspiring women of style and subtance. This is an excerpt from our regular Beauty Insider feature.




Patti LaBelle’s illustrious career began in the 1960s, when she began performing with the Bluebells. Since then, she has recorded more than 50 albums, both in groups and as a soloist. The iconic singer has received countless accolades, including two Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, seven NAACP Image Awards, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And in 2009, she was inducted into the Apollo Legends Hall of. LaBelle has also penned four best-selling books. “I want to be remembered as someone who helped others and helped make this world of ours a better place.”

“I am grateful for my family, my friends, my health and being able to be recognized and make a living doing what I love.”
