The Gospel According to Patti LaBelle

The Gospel According To Patti LaBelle is the first gospel album released by singer Patti LaBelle, released in November 2006. This project began three years earlier when Patti’s late musical director and close friend Budd Ellison told a skeptical LaBelle that “it’s now or never, Patti.” The album is dedicated to his memory as he succumbed to prostate cancer before the album saw a release. The album was released on November 21, 2006 through indie label Umbrella/Bungalow Records, also home to Carl Thomas, Rodney Jerkins, and other artists. The Gospel According To Patti LaBelle features collaborations with Yolanda Adams, Mary Mary, Kanye West, Wynonna Judd, The Soul Seekers, Tye Tribbett, CeCe Winans and more. Production duties were handled by Gordon Chambers (who produced Patti’s hit duet with Ron Isley, “Gotta Go Solo”), J. Moss, Scott “Shavoni” Parker, Troy Taylor, Gerald Haddon, Jon DeLise (also produced on Patti’s Timeless Journey’s Two Steps Away) and others. Read More
