Patricia Louise Holt-Edwards (born May 24, 1944) better known under the stage name Patti LaBelle, is an American singer, author, and actress. LaBelle began her career in the early 1960s as lead singer and front woman of the vocal group, Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles. Following the group's name change to Labelle in the early 1970s, she released the iconic disco song "Lady Marmalade" and the group later became the first African-American vocal group to land the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. After the group split in 1976, LaBelle began a successful solo career, starting with her critically acclaimed debut album, which included the career-defining song, "You Are My Friend". LaBelle became a mainstream solo star in 1984 following the success of the singles, "If Only You Knew", "New Attitude" and "Stir It Up", with the latter two crossing over to pop audiences becoming radio staples.

Wasn't Patti la Belle happily married to the same guy for a long time? I like her voice a lot though..

I Do Not Belive This Story Because Miss Pattie Keeps A Very Low Profile. It Also Been Said That She Dated Ronald Isley For A While. But Who Ever She dating Both Men Are Fine And She Is A Very Pretty Lady.
