    Hey I want to give others a chance to say what they feel about Patti but I have been a fan from the early 80’s the first time I saw here was in in Houston “Your Arms Are To Short To Box With GOD” every song she sang people hand to stand and give her love because there is no one like her and at 64 years young I think that’s Patti’s age no Young singer can match her now they have range and voice but what makes Patti is the love that comes from her soul I have followed her from state to state to see her shows and have often had the chance to go up on stage but fear stopped me… but if I’m blessed to see her again I’m going to get up to that stage I can’t sing but I must see Labelle again I did meet her at her book signing and Patti was with Norma Harris- Gordon she was helping Patti and believe me Patti is real she spoke with me I knew one of her background singers Tommi Johnson at the time and she she so down to earth , sometimes I wonder how it was in the house as her son Zuri “you have a great mom so just keep loving her and shout out to Armstead Edwards I no they are no longer together but he is a great business man thanks for all the years , and love to the late Budd Ellison
