PATTI LABELLE ~ WHEN YOU’VE BEEN BLESSED!


OH
HOW I LOVE ME SOME
MS PATTI LABELLE
cos
“When you been BLESSED
it feels like HEAVEN”
and
babies you just gotta
“pass it on”
as
Ms Patti says,
“PASS IT ON”
and Patti knows how to pass it on!
She’s been passin it on for years now
and
I’ve been takin each pass she sends out
with each octave she hits
with each and ever beautiful smile
and
dance step
and
high heel she throws
and
new move she busts
while telling her stories through her music!
I do miss the WILD hair styles
and
so wish she would
bring back
the mohawk
from back in the day!
BUT
one thing that I do believe
and
lawd please don’t let me ever hear otherwise…
I just don’t think I could bear it…
PATTI LABELLE
is
“real”.
She keeps it real, she always has!
And that coupled with her voice
is the reason I have
always loved her.
She has lived a life filled with angst, fear, and has walked through some pretty dark places through the years,
but
her voice has pulled her from the ashes
like the phoenix.
Her faith has sustained her
when
the high stars and honors shunned her
and
awards weren’t placed in her hands as they should have been.
She’s been a guest at the White House
*she had her hot sauce in her purse then to spice up the food*
and had no problem pullin it out!
She’s been a guest on Oprah
and
sang to her…
*Oprah still hasn’t held up
my copy of
Healing Heartaches, nor has she placed it on her
book club” *waht up OPRAH?*
Patti has stood on stages
and
shared her grief so loudly
that the tears flowed from her face
into the audience
who screamed
“Take your time Patti, we love you”.
She patted her face, rubbed off her make-up,
and
admitted that she wasn’t there for her beloved sister
Jackie prior to her death,
and then would break into song
and
sing
“The Wind Beneath My Wings”
dedicated to Jackie.
><
Patti Labelle
a woman who has been all over the world
and
oh what a light she has cast
and
what sounds she has taken over the rainbow and back!
A woman who was afraid she would not live to see
50
as those she loved the most had died prior to that age,
now is doing her “thang”
with grace, beauty, style and class
after moving on past 50
in her high style
and
with a voice
that only the Creator could keep so pure
and
a fan base that loves her where there is no space or time.
><
oHHH the hair!
Ms Patti had some hair now,
from the days
of
Patti, Nora and Sarah
and
the
“BlueBells, Labelle”
they were fierce!
Patti and her girls in reunions have been just
off the hook as they join together on stages
and
sing like the diva
she is!
Patti is a class act,
one who has sung with just about everyone
in the industry
to include
a young man recently on
America’s Got Talent!
He won if I remember
and
his dream was to sing with Patti!
He had previously worked in a car wash,
and
when that young man opened his mouth
Sinatra came out!
Wouldn’t you know he won… and when he sange with Patti,
rather then upstage him, she moved to the back of the stage
and let him have the light…
She applauded him and moved to the back, quietly exiting the stage
knowing it was time for him to shine,
his wish and dream fulfilled!
><
That is a star that shines beyond the heavens.
I LOVE ME SOME PATTI!!!
><
I can remember one year
in DC
Patti was there for a three day tour,
and
I had tickets for each night
oh goodness I was exhausted at the end of that tour!
I had to lay down when it was all said and done
I had overdosed on dancing, on singing
on
being with Patti backstage
on
being filled with her voice
and
with the spirit
and
the blessings!
IT WAS WONDERFUL
~~~
Music is a great balm for the soul
a great healer for all
and
magical.
Patti Labelle is magician of music
who will take you to depths
that your soul is just not used to going!
AND
move you?
OH my, whether you are confined to your bed
a wheel chair
or free to lift your feet,
Patti and her music, her band
YOU WILL BE MOVED!
and
once you have recovered
you can read her books of recipes
and
feed your body
as you listen to her fill you with sounds!
><
I have often told warriors here,
“I’ll stand by you”
and there is no better way to tell it
than to share Patti singing it
as she sang it to the soldiers.
Listen, watch, FEEL
the energy of Patti
as she moves through this song
with such raw emotion
and
pure intention
and oh that voice!
OH yes, Patti will fill you up…
and
she is HERE
in Florida
and
tonight
I will be with Patti
listening with all my senses to her as she just sings
her heart out!
And I will be taken away, to the musical heavens
and over the rainbow
and
I am over the top about it!
Can you tell?
I will also see Patti afterwards and give her a copy of
Healing Heartaches
I think she is goin to appreciate it,
but
Patti would appreciate
a brown bag
filled with crab claws better!
She does love some crab!
The funny thing is watching watch folks bring her
and the people at concert halls that try to take your cameras away from you and often succeed.
Patti will tell fans,
“Baby if you want your picture now is the time to get it,
my make up is about to drip, my hair is about to flip, so c’mon and get your pictures”!!!
Well the sad truth is, we’ve all been frisked at the doors in most venues!
These days of smart phones and clever fans, most will find a way to smuggle in cameras though
and get their precious pictures of Patti!
and
oh the flowers she receives from those who love her
and
make their way to the edge of the stage to present them!
Patti loves her some flowers
and the piano sitting on stage usually has a brilliant vase
that includes bird of paradise with other wonderful colors and textures for her.
Fans will adore the moment
will try to touch her,
to get eye contact
with her
and
to once again while she busts a move
and
hits 5 octaves
let her know
“Patti we love you”
as
she is truly one of the most gifted artists
this musical world will ever know!
A diva?
You betcha, she earned the rights,
and
she has the voice to back it up
one whose songs
tell a story
whose faith
has brought her through some trying times
and
who stands with tremendous and amazing grace
through it all.
NOW
with friends like us
Patti will never go broke
as she likes to tell you!
But
wherever you are today
I want you to know
friends are a valued and treasured gift
treat them well,
hold them tight
and
remember
YOU ARE MY FRIEND
and if this rendition of Patti don’t move ya
I just don’t know what ever would!!!
Cos “Debbie Henry” has some pipes on her that Patti loves to share with the world…
What a woman, what a voice, what
what am I to do tonight?
Lawd I think I’ll just lose my mind with all this
excitement and JOY!!!
YOU ARE MY FRIEND…
“i’VE BEEN LOOKIN AROUND AND YOU WERE HERE ALL ALONG”
Dont ya just love it!!!
Gives ya something to think about now doesn’t it???
Go on now,
“Dont block the blessings”
Be well,
enjoy
Listen to some Patti
and
sing!
It’s good for your heart
Walk in Beauty

You would not only be getting the details of what are the minimum required configurations, you also get a clear idea of how to install the fax services in Win XP.

While some service companies combine the pages you send and receive into your total volume of business, others segregate the pages sent and pages received.
