On the Monday, July 12 edition of “Tamron Hall,” legendary singer, actress and businesswoman Patti LaBelle joins Tamron Hall to celebrate the special 20th anniversary edition of her cookbook, LaBelle Cuisine.
The Grammy-winning singer discusses her culinary business, shares insight as to why she needed a backup plan and explains why, during the pandemic, she continued to bring the “glam” while cooking.
During the interview, LaBelle is surprised and delighted with video messages from some of her biggest fans, including award-winning filmmaker Lee Daniels and renowned chef Carla Hall.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of LaBelle’s cookbook, Lee Daniels surprised Patti with a special video message:
“I get this call at one o’clock in the morning from Lenny Kravitz, who knows how much I love Patti and how obsessed I am with LaBelle, vintage LaBelle. And he tells me ‘Come down to my house right away.’ I said, ‘Dude, it’s one o’clock in the morning, my kids are here.’ ‘Well, bring the kids, it’s important. I got a surprise.’ So I get there, I walk into his kitchen, and there is Patti frying chicken, Nona [Hendryx] making potato salad and Sarah [Dash] making biscuits. I almost pass out, the kids are already passed out, and then we start singing their songs. I wish that we had the phones that video recorded. It was something that I will never forget. And it was magic.”
