Churchin' With Patti

Mark your calendars. Probably one of the biggest events of the season is here. And it's being headed by R&B's reigning diva Patti Labelle. For years, she has been asked to do a gospel project. Because of her ongoing affirmation to God and having no shame in expressing her love for Jesus Christ on stage and in her private life (strongly revealed in her powerful autobiography, "Don't Block Your Blessings"), Labelle will be preparing to release "The Gospel According To Patti" this fall and will be promoting it with an extensive fourteen city tour promoted by Chrysler and is targeted to take place at several prominent mega-churches. Tour dates will include Dallas, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Charlotte, Los Angeles and Detroit.

As for the album's release date, it is not confirmed but it is slated to be released this fall. Some of the dates will feature guest artists from the album which include Mary Mary, Yolanda Adams, Tye Tribbett, J. Moss, CeCe Winans and Wynonna Judd.
