Patti Labelle & Gladys Knight

Gladys Knight & Patti LaBelle Face Off in ‘Verzuz’ Battle

Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle are the latest artists to go head-to-head on the series Verzuz, following Brandy and Monica’s showdown earlier this month.

During the three-hour verzuz battle, the two iconic soul singers went back and forth performing their chart-topping hits while discussing their careers and their shared love for music in between. Knight performed “Midnight Train to Georgia” twice during the show and during her performance of “If You Asked Me To,” LaBelle made a point to note that her version preceded Celine Dion’s more well-known recording, coming out three years prior.

During the final rounds, LaBelle performed “Lady Marmalade” and “The Alphabet Song,” her famous record from Sesame Street. They were then joined by surprise guest and vocal powerhouse, Dionne Warwick, who performed “That’s What Friends Are For” before joining Knight and LaBelle for a rendition of “Superwoman” to close out the night.

Needless to say, the event was a cause for celebration among music lovers, many of whom took to Twitter to share their appreciation for how impressive, enthusiastic and exuberant Knight and LaBelle have remained through all these years.
