It’s going to be a Patti, Patti summer. Living legend Patti Labelle is heading out on the Summer Music Festival with some of her friends who also happen to be soul icons. Frankie Beverly and Maze, the O’Jays,  Babyface and Tank join Labelle as the festival hits several cities for its six-week run.

Labelle, who is well known for her five-decade career as part of the groundbreaking 70’s girl group Labelle, a stellar solo career, TV  and Broadway shows and movies, is also known for her culinary abilities. She’s now promoting a line of marinades called Lady Marmalade through her website and can be found on Twitter @MsPattiPatti. Frankie Beverly and Maze will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the BET Awards broadcasting live from L.A. on July 1 at 8 p.m.
