When it comes to talent (that voice!) and style (the Mohawk was among her signature style moves), Grammy Award-winning songstress/actress Patti LaBelle is a true inspiration. And now, fans will get to know even more about this iconic entertainer when she sits down as the subject of the Emmy-nominated series Oprah’s Master Class airing tonight (at 8p ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network). The larger than life vocalist has electrified audiences over the past five decades. Growing up, she was hesitant about revealing her God-given talent, but as lead singer for the group Labelle, made famous for their unforgettable hit “Lady Marmalade,” and later as a solo artist, Patti Labelle has achieved remarkable success in music and on the Broadway stage, fiercely dedicated to performing her best and remaining honest with her fans. And while her achievements may be great, this star’s career and life are still ruled by her belief to live life for today and remaining ageless.
