14. Patti LaBelle and the Blue Belles

Can you say “voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir”? Of course, you can. You can now speak a little French thanks to the Philadelphia quartet, Patti LaBelle and the Blue Belles. The 60’s girl group was a mix of doo-wop, gospel and pop and had a powerful wsound ith Ms. Patti on the lead vocals, but the group could not break through to the Top 10. That is, until 1974, after the departure of Cindy Birdsong and the ladies moved to Epic Records, where they recorded "Lady Marmalade" for their album Night Birds. The song went on to sell over one million copies and became an instant classic which was later remixed by Missy Elliott in 2001 for the film Moulin Rouge and performed by a superstar line-up, featuring Christina Aguilera, Mya, Lil Kim and Pink. LaBelle flew the coop on her Blue Belles in the late '70s and rose to the top of the charts with her solo efforts throughout the 1980s. (Photo: Gilles Pétard Collection/Getty Images)
