Patti Labelle, Janelle Monae and Ariana Grande all on one stage…Lawd, we’re not worthy! The vocalists joined each other for a once in a lifetime performance at the “Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House,” concert on Thursday.
“Mr. President, Mrs. Obama, what’s up, how are ya?,” Ariana greeted the First family before belting out an impressive cover of Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” followed by her own song “Tattooed Heart.”
After Grande’s solo performance, Patti took the floor and brought down the house with her entertaining and powerful vocals on top of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” that was only complete when she was joined by Jill Scott, Tessanne Chin, Melissa Etheridge, Janelle Monae and Ariane Grande. What a finale!
“Women of Soul: In Performance at the White House,” will air April 7 on PBS. Catch a sneak peek of the special, below:
