Miss Patti LaBelle was the moving force behind the 70's Soul group LaBelle and their signature song Lady Marmalade made them international superstars. Patti's powerful vocals made her a standout in the group (though they subsequently reformed in the 90's) as she eventually went solo with a sustained and successful career that has lasted decades.

From Gospel and Ballads (The Best Is Yet to Come, On My Own) and Disco (Music Is My Way of Life) to 80's pop (New Attitude, Stir It Up) and 90's R&B/House (Turn It Out, Shoe on the Other Foot, When You Talk about Love) the women is a force to be reckoned with.

I'm sorry that I cannot spend more time providing accolades to Miss Patti, but I just literally escaped a two day nightmare from Emory (world renowned hospital) with my IV still embedded yesterday and just saw my PCP who has now gotten me a bed at a neighboring hospital which he is affiliated. Long story, but I'm not in the best of shape these days.

I just wanted to make sure I got this out since it's been complete for a couple of weeks now and let's face it, WHO DOESN'T LOVE PATTI? I'll slap you down if you say you don't because you haven't listened to this magnificent representation (albeit limited) of her contributions to house music.

Without further ado, Party Favorz is thrilled to induct Miss Patti LaBelle into the Diva Hall of Fame.

Party Favorz is a series of commercial and underground club mixes that I started making for friends in 1999. In 2007, at the urging of friends, I decided to move everything online and the Party Favorz blog was born. Whether you’re gay, straight, black, white, pink or purple, Party Favorz has no boundaries and everyone IS welcome here. Comments and suggestions are always appreciated; in fact, they are encouraged. Always remember that despite the name tag, Party Favorz DOES NOT promote nor endorse the use of illegal substances. Frankly, house music is the only drug your body needs to have a good time. LIVE, WORK, PLAY DANCE . . . just do it responsibly. Now on to the music! Keith a.k.a. K j A M
