Grammy-Winning Singer/Songwriter Patti LaBelle to Headline Southern Women’s Show on Sunday, March 25, 2018


SAVANNAH, Ga. – The Southern Women’s Show (SWS), which returns to Savannah, March 23-25, 2018, is thrilled to announce Patti LaBelle, an American singer, songwriter, actress, and entrepreneur will make a special guest appearance at the SWS’s Fashion Stage on Sunday, March 25 at 1 p.m.

Known for her classic rhythm and blues renditions, pop standards and spiritual sonnets, the soulful songbird has taken her tunes to the kitchen where she published five best-selling books and introduced Patti’s Good Life, a successful line of food products that features a variety of sauces, sweet potato pie and cakes. Her success in the kitchen landed her starring in cooking specials on the Cooking Channel and the Food Network.

“We’re so excited to welcome Pattie to Savannah and to the Southern Women’s Show,” said Sara Cochran, show manager for Southern Women’s Show. “Patti’s story is so inspirational and her new line of food products are simply delicious. We can’t wait for guests to come and hear her speak and get to know her a little more!”

In addition to Patti’s entertainer and entrepreneurial achievements, she is also an advocate for adoption, foster care, Big Sisters and the United Negro College Fund, among many other initiatives. In fact, after being diagnosed with diabetes, Patti became a spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association. She is also the proud spokesperson for Hood Calorie Countdown, a rich and creamy dairy beverage that provides the wholesome nutrition of milk with less sugar and fewer calories and carbohydrates.
