Performs Two Sold Out Valentine’s Day Concerts
Brittany Somerset and Gerry Hopkins
In response to what has been characterized as “Patti-fever,” the cultural connoisseurs of Jammins Entertainment, assisted by Gmax Enterprises, scheduled a second appearance of the iconic soul star, Patti LaBelle. Both shows – the initial one at 7p.m., and the added appearance at 10p.m. – took place at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music, on Valentine’s Day.
The versatile two-time Grammy winning singer has over 40 years in the music business and is a cultural icon to multiple generations of fans. She performed her classic, genre-crossing hits like “On My Own,” “Lady Marmalade,” “If Only You Knew,” “Live! One Night Only,” and “Burnin’ ” with her distinctive four octave voice, all while looking fabulous in a stunning bright red dress and high heels.
In addition to her Grammy awards, she holds three honorary doctorate degrees from reputable universities located on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Patti has distinguished herself as a best selling author of four books, including Don’t Block the Blessings: Revelations of a Lifetime, and is a successful actress with TV shows such as “Out All Night.” Patti is a vocal advocate for diabetes and cancer prevention/treatment awareness. Part of the proceeds of the concerts were donated to the American Foundation for The University of the West Indies (AFUMI) Scholarship Fund.
