    The Ultimate Patti LaBelle / Patti LaBelle IS BACK...

    With the exception of some old-souled young artists like Alicia Keys, finding grown folks music is pretty much limited to old CDs and old school radio stations. They just don’t make a lot of good soul music anymore.

    So it was a real treat Sunday night when the Forum held a concert with Frankie Beverly and Maze, Patti Labelle and Reuben Studdard. Not a teeny bopper in sight.

    Labelle has still got it. Her voice still sends chills down my spine every she sings “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” And she still loves to kick her shoes off. A pair of heels went flying off the stage during one of her songs. Luckily, she had a pair of back-ups.

    Now 70 years young, she told the crowd, “Ms. Patti is back!” But I say she never left.
