It wouldn’t be a Patti LaBelle performance if she didn’t at some point kick her shoes off into the next time zone, and her Verzuz Battle with Gladys Knight on Instagram Live Sunday was no different. Instead of a showdown, however, LaBelle and Knight followed the pattern established by several Battles before them and had a love fest, complimenting each other on everything from their tour buses to their cooking to their respective registers. However, if you weren’t sure if this Battle’s good vibes were genuine, Patti LaBelle fortunately has a pretty obvious tell.
If you were waiting for the other shoe to drop, however, Sunday’s Verzuz also had an eleventh hour reveal that would have had us quaking in our boots (if we had to sing with her right off-stage, we mean.) Fellow legend Dionne Warwick joined the duo for a rendition of “That’s What Friends Are For” to close out the livestream. Come on Patti (and Gladys and Dionne.)

When Ms. Dionne joined Ms. Patti & Ms. Gladys the tears wouldn’t stop. The memories. The grace and class of these ladies. Now the wisdom 🤎All this makes me realize how blessed I am to have grown up in a time when music meant something beautiful. 🌹Thank you #Verzuz pic.twitter.com/074MUBsvOW
