If you caught the legendary Verzuz battle with Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight on Sunday night then you definitely witnessed a part of history! The highly anticipated event had over a half of million people glued to their computer and smartphones to watch the two living legends play music, crack jokes and cut up like two aunties over wine and pie at Sunday dinner.
Patti LaBelle, like most of us, is still glowing over the night that’s sure to be one of the most memorable in the Swizz Beatz/Timbaland curated series and to keep the momentum going, she visited The Estelle Show on Apple Music Hits to chat more, including the very moment she kicked off her shoe and sent social media into a frenzy! “This is a stage show, right? So honey, when I’m standing up and doing Over The Rainbow, I kick my shoes off, but I have a long way for that shoe to fly, honey, that shoe kicked off and landed on my knee, I have scars on my right knee. That heel went in my knee. I said, “Oh Jesus.” I said, “So will I be able to finish dancing because this knee is hurting me so bad?” But that was a moment that I love because it was real. It was real.”
And when asked if she had any advice for the youth today, Ms. Patti says that it would be to vote. “Because that would put us all in a greater mind if our vote counts the way it should, because then everybody would have a better life, a better outlook on life, and a more positive looking forward to what’s going to happen in their lives. But if you don’t vote and you sit home complaining after you didn’t vote, don’t say one word because the choice is yours and you can make it a better place because we all have to vote.”
