Patti LaBelle, Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson and Yolanda Adams bring down the house at theGrio Awards
LaBelle was honored with the Music Icon Award at the inaugural awards ceremony.
Fantasia, Jennifer Hudson, Yolanda Adams, Queen Latifah and Patti LaBelle delivered a crowd-pleasing performance. The quintet belted out a powerful and moving cover of the Karyn White R&B classic, “Superwoman,” during a ceremony that reserved one of its highest honors for the Grammy award-winning LaBelle.
A major showcase of Black excellence, the inaugural awards ceremony, recognized some of the most impactful African-American names in music, TV and film, comedy, sports, business and other sectors. Queen Latifah, Hudson, Tyler Perry, Ben Crump and Don Peebles were among the other honorees.
LaBelle received the Music Icon Award and, as a result, was showered with musical tribute performances. The “Godmother of Soul” would eventually grace the stage herself in the show’s finale — along with her four friends — to cover “Superwoman,” a song she also covered in 1991 with Gladys Knight and Dionne Warwick.
