From her beginnings in the church choir, Patti LaBelle’s soulful vocals have showcased blues, gospel, jazz and funk that have catapulted her to a singing career of more than 50 years. The Detroit native has expanded her talents to include baking and barbecue sauce, but the energy she brings to the stage remains, and her powerfully emotive voice continues to captivate audiences everywhere.

Sunday, October 8. $49.75-150, 8pm. The Paramount Theater, 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.

We’re glad you’re participating. Here are a few simple rules to follow, which should be relatively straightforward.

1) Don’t call people names or accuse them of things you cannot support.
2) Don’t direct foul language, racial slurs, or offensive terms at other commenters or our staff.
3) Don’t use the discussion on our site for commercial (or shameless personal) promotion.

We reserve the right to remove posts and ban commenters who violate any of the rules listed above, or the spirit of the discussion. We’re trying to create a safe space for a wide range of people to express themselves, and we believe that goal can only be achieved through thoughtful, sensitive editorial control.
