Soulful songstress Patti LaBelle brings her R&B, gospel and jazz to State Fair on Saturday, Aug. 12 at 8 p.m., along with special guest En Vogue. LaBelle first found mainstream success in the 1970s with the iconic disco song “Lady Marmalade” and her signature anthem “You Are My Friend.” She cemented her status as a bona fide star in the 1980s with singles “If You Only Knew,” “New Attitude” and “On My Own,” a duet with Michael McDonald that reached number one on the Billboard charts. To date, LaBelle has sold more than 50 million records. Her new album Homage hits stores today.
Heralded as one of the most-successful female vocal groups of all time, En Vogue made a splash with their 1990 hit “Hold On” and never looked back. “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” and “Free Your Mind” were instant R&B classics, making En Vogue a household name.
