Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle graced the homes of many on Sunday evening during Verzuz. These two women are legends and have created timeless music for centuries to come! If you missed it or just want to relive the experience, we’ve got four of the most memorable moments from Verzuz

Patti LaBelle Has a Flip Phone

LaBelle and Knight revealed that their children and loved ones helped them learn more about Verzuz! LaBelle and Knight said they didn’t know too much about Verzuz because they don’t frequently use social media. LaBelle then told viewers she still owns her flip phone and she is not in a hurry to trade it in! 

“Somebody Loves You Baby” by Patti LaBelle

Some of you may have heard this song while you’re grandma was preparing sweet potato pie or when you were in a dilemma with your boo thang! Nelly and Kelly Rowland sampled this song into what many millennials know it to be as “Dilemma”!  

Swizz Beatz Birthday

This Verzuz was uberly special because it happened on Swizz Beatz’s birthday! LaBelle and Knight both shouted him out and talked more about the various memories the two have with him and Timbaline. He and Timbaline created Verzuz and without them, there wouldn’t be any legendary performances happening during the quarantine.

Michelle Obama is a Huge Fan of Knight and LaBelle 

Michelle and Barrack Obama are known for their bomb playlists and love for old school music! Michelle entered the live stream and LaBelle and Knight shouted the Barracks out! How awesome is it to have two soul-singing legends shout out the first Black first lady? Unbelievable! 

Dione Warwick Joined! 


If you thought Verzuz couldn’t get any more iconic, you thought wrong, because it did! The admirable singer, Dione Warwick, joined the live stream! Together they all sang their classic song, “Superwoman”.
