Patti Labelle took em to church during philanthropist Denise Rich annual cancer research fundraising gala……. The Angel Ball.
The legendary singer performed some oldies but goodies like “New Attitude” and a powerful rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” that brought attendees at the gala to tears according to Pagesix.
Rich, who is also a Grammy nominated songwriter described Patti’s performance to the publication, “I felt in that moment that Patti had been touched by God. It was like going to church, and so very meaningful for me and my family. We miss Kai so much, but we hope he is looking down on us from a better place.”
The Angel Ball was held Monday night at Cipriani Wall Street and raised more than $3 million for groundbreaking cancer research.
Denise Rich has been throwing her Angel Ball for about 20 years, since her daughter Gabrielle died of leukemia. She renamed the charity Gabrielle’s Angels.
