Cast: Patricia Holt
One of R&B's greatest divas, Patti LaBelle has been one of the finest vocalists in soul music in a career that's spanned five decades, and this live video, recorded on-stage at New York City's Manhattan Center in 2000, finds her still at the top of her form. Patti LaBelle: Live! One Night Only features LaBelle singing 20 songs, including "When You Talk About Love," "I Believe I Can Fly," "New Attitude," "Sparkle," "On My Own," and "If You Asked Me To." Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey also make special guest appearances.

This is Soul music at it's best. Although she has never managed to sell by the bucketload, Patti Labelle still manages to maintain her astounding ability to produce a heartfelt and exciting show as witnessed here in her first live video in over a decade. She glides through early hits such as ''Over the Rainbow'' whilst maintaining a contemporary edge with the inclusion of such hits as the stomping eighties anthem ''New Attitude''. Her material spans decades much like her long and illustrious career and although she has a shown a mysterious capacity to lose some substance in her past studio recordings live performance is clearly where, the now, 'Miss' Labelle is in her element as she readily shows in her immaculate execution of such timeless greats as ''I Believe'' and the Piaf composition ''If you love me''. Featuring guest appearances by Luther Vandross and Mariah Carey Patti, nevertheless, remains the star of the show. A must for every diehard soul fan
