Matriarchs of R&B and Soul Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight faced off for a Verzuz on Sunday (Sept. 13) evening. Hundreds of thousands of fans - dressed in their Sunday’s best - of the living legends tuned into Instagram Live for the “Master class we’ve all been waiting for.”
#PattiLaBelle #GladysKnight #Verzuz
The virtual audience included everyone from Former First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Tyrese, Swizz Beatz - who was also celebrating his birthday, Timbaland, Queen Latifah, Brandy and so many more.
And while there were no Gladys Knight’s chicken and waffles or Pattie LaBelle pies, the Ciroc was definitely flowing, which fostered a festive vibe for viewers.

  • Much love my Queen's, i've been blessed to see,and hear both of you live, and on records. You have come through some rough times, Jim Crow, and Segregation! Times when you wouldn't be served, or allowed to stay in the place you were performing. You are our gifts, nobody can sing like either one of you, you are once in a life time, and i'm so glade i'm a part of that/this time. Many blessing be with you always!

  • @ michelle king it said in the article steve and mikaella are bleaching & lightning their skin .However they deny it saying they have a skin condition .But they dont even look black anymore from using this lotion they look mixed race evidently this is the same lotion hollywood celebrities use to lighten their skin like many shades lighter.If they had some skin disorder then why do they look like mixed race now and not black? people should be upfront and honest not pretending that their skin is naturally so light.

  • These two lovely ladies are so beautiful within their own right. The duos are true divas who cares about the order of what, their music is doing for the nations people especially, throughout this pandemic series of our lives. Music, is the greatest nourishment to the heart felt comfort of our feelings that, we bare within ourselves, and the the root of our sweet loving existence. Everyone, needs to re-link one another to how life, love, and music brings every race back to the definition of what our world means to us all. "The true harmony of music and the gathering of togetherness which, makes a great balance to people all around the world. " Thank you Ms.Gladys Knight, Ms.Patti La'belle and all musical artist for sharing your golden music with us all. I truly appreciate all of you!!
