Patti LaBelle‘s discography is one of the most legendary pieces of work by any artist. It’s only right to honor her while she’s alive, with her hometown of Philadelphia making the first move. On Tuesday afternoon, Patti LaBelle had a street named after her, with a stretch of Broad Street being renamed “Patti LaBelle Way.”
The legendary artist made sure to thank her fans who showed up and clogged the intersection to show love. LaBelle even treated her fans to a rendition of her classic tracks, “Love, Need and Want You.”
LaBelle has received many accolades throughout her career, including BET’s coveted Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. The singer has also guest-starred in several shows, including “Empire” and “American Horror Story: Freak Show.”
Congrats to Ms. Patti LaBelle!
I’m so excited that Philadelphia’s Broad Street between Spruce & Locust is being renamed #PattiLaBelleWay during the city’s Wawa Welcome America Festival! Please join me for the dedication ceremony on Tuesday, July 2nd at 4PM on the southwest corner of Broad & Spruce Streets! 😘 pic.twitter.com/5g9iysq6Nb
