Since I’m nearing the end of my Over the Rainbow series I was having a hard time deciding which versions to put up. I finally decided on a very bold choice for Day 9. Patti LaBelle is a very well known R&B and Soul Singer from the 70’s and 80’s. There are many different recordings of her sings OTR and they all are SO different. You can look them up if you are really curious for a fun vid or two. I ended up choosing a version she did in tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Her high range and crazy riffs may come as a shock to you and you may find this way too bizarre but, I personally love the campiness and extreme talent that this woman has. Not many people can sing the way she does!
Here’s Patti LaBelle’s rifftastic verson of Over the Rainbow:
Wow. Just Wow!
