Patti LaBelle is constantly known for reinventing herself and her career and with a career spanning over six decades, that’s not an easy thing to do. The “Godmother of Soul” has found a new way to reinvent herself in the form of a biopic. During a recent interview, LaBelle discussed her life, career, as well as the conversation she had with Jennifer Hudson. “She just wanted to know what it felt like to be in the presence of Aretha. It was priceless, you know. Just a wonderful legend,” LaBelle recalls. While speaking about the film, LaBelle revealed who she wants to play her in a biopic. “I have no clue. I have about six or seven people- six or seven girls who said they would like to play Patti LaBelle, and they’re all worthy, so I don’t know which one would do the best job,” she said. LaBelle continued, “You know Fantasia and Jennifer, but she can’t because she did Aretha; but a lot of wonderful, young ladies would love to play Patti Patti.” Who do you think should play Patti LaBelle in a biopic?
