Patti Labelle is a legendary soul singer who can sing with the best of the best. She was apart of the era of Motown‘s rise and played an integral part in having urban music reach a broader audience.
So it becomes obvious why Walmart would team up with the songstress to release a new line of frozen soul food for their grocery aspect of their store chain. The below statement was made to the public about the new agreement.
“Coming soon to a Walmart near you, you’ll have my savory foods,” LaBelle told the crowd at Essence Fest last weekend MSN reports.
The legend continued on to tell the crowd what to expect from this new line. “There will be foods like macaroni and cheese. It’s greens, it’s brisket, it’s chicken and biscuits, and five more I can’t think of them.”
She also explained that she will be health conscious with her brand as she suffers from diabetes. “Health is important, I’m a diabetic,” she told the crowd. “And when I make macaroni and cheese I don’t usually eat it, I taste it, because I am a diabetic for 25 years. Ladies and gentlemen, you have to take care of yourselves and eat healthier. But eat.”
This comes a week after getting a street named after her in the city of Philadelphia.
