*It’s one thing to be admired by millions of fans, but it’s certainly another to be complimented by one of the most legendary divas on the planet. Patti LaBelle called Ledisi “one of the best” singers.

“I love you so much,” Patti told Ledisi on an Urban Daily video interview. “You are one of those people that will have a long, long, long career. You’re one of the best singers I’ve ever heard.”

She further commented about the singer’s humility and sense of appreciation.

“You’re on your way to accomplishing [longevity] because you’re nice to people. I’ve watched you so many times and you’re kind.”

Ledisi reveled in the praise and also shared why Patti is her idol.

“I watched you,” Ledisi shared about following in Patti’s footsteps. “You’re beautiful and you’re honest. You can feel your heart when you sing.”
