Patti Labelle (Designer)
Patti LaBelle is a rhythm and blues singer known as "The Godmother of Soul" who first rose to prominence as a member of The Blue Belles in the early 1960s. She has won two Grammy awards as a solo artist and was inducted into the Apollo Theater Legends Hall of Fame in 2009.
After early several No. 1 hits, The Blue Belles hit a dry spell, but staged a comeback after they changed their name to LaBelle in the 1970s and scored a hit with their 1974 album "Nightbirds." They were the first black singing group to be featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
Patti LaBelle began her solo career in 1977, scoring several pop radio hits and earning her first Grammy for the album "Burnin'" in 1991 and another in 1999 for her album "Live! One Night Only." She is the author of several cookbooks and develops her own food products, including hot sauce and the popular "Patti Pie," a sweet potato pie.
In 1995, LaBelle joined forces with Flori Roberts, Inc. to develop her own line of beauty products. Her first fragrance, Patti LaBelle for Women, was released in 1996. Flori Roberts, a prestige brand sold in high-end department stores, was the first cosmetics company to develop beauty products specifically for women of color. LaBelle's second perfume, Girlfriend, was released in 1998. Both scents are in still production as of 2016. Flori Roberts became a subsidiary of Color Me Beautiful, Inc. in 1998.
