Soul Fixin'

UNCF Salutes Ms. PattiA list of who's who in R&B will take the stage in Hollywood at The Kodak Theater to pay homage to soul songstress Patti LaBelle. Anita Baker, Dionne Warwick, Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Joss Stone, Yolanda Adams and others will serenade Ms. Patti at next month's UNCF Evening of Stars. The two hour tribute will be taped September 4 and air sometime in January. Past honorees include soul legends Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Smokey Robinson and Lou Rawls. I will definitely be tuned in even though a Patti LaBelle tribute isn't complete without Luther Vandross or Gerald LeVert.
