Unhappy Patti LaBelle Cries On Stage, Embarrassed By Her "Worst Show"

Patti LaBelle: 'Worst Show I've Ever Done'
Monday, March 27, 2006

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. — Patti LaBelle struggled through a weekend show after taking the stage at midnight, at one point sitting down and crying.

"I've never been this embarrassed in my life," LaBelle told the crowd Saturday at the Riviera Beach Jazz & Blues Festival. "It's the worst show I've ever done in my life."

As temperatures dipped into the low 50s, LaBelle explained that she's nearly 62, has diabetes and a heart murmur -- and the cold weather wasn't agreeing with her.

The R&B singer tried to belt out a few notes, then told fans huddled under blankets that she understood if they walked out on her.

A steady stream of people left the show during her 45 minutes onstage after having waited hours through opening acts.

"I've never ever given you less than I can give. I'm gonna give you everything you deserve," she said.

LaBelle struggled through "Lady Marmalade" with assistance from a few in the crowd, sang some gospel songs and "On My Own" before retreating.

However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I feel sad for Patty. It's certainly not her fault. It's the fault of the organizers of the Riviera Jazz & Blues Festival. Patti was out way past her bedtime in the first place. Why wasn't she the first act out?
She should have had a choice of when she wanted to go out.
Patti is a perfectionist. There have been times when she hasn't like how a song was arranged during rehearsal and she wouldn't do it.
She even did it last year at the Philadelphia 4th of July celebration.
I give it up to Patty for performing anyway but at the same time she should have used her divaness.
Tell these money-oriented morons that you are THEE Patti Labelle and I want to be my own opening act.
There's no need to have them making you look bad.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."

She's proved over and over and over again that she can definitely produce quality vocals live, but it's real nice to see how much she cared that she couldn't give a grat show to her fans everytime. Younger artists should really take note of this and follow her example.
