Patti LaBelle Consoles Ariana Grande As She Tackles Whitney Houston For The Obamas At White House Women Of Soul

Ariana Grande, known as “The Voice” of her generation was invited to Washington D.C., to sing for the In Performance at the White House: Women of Soul concert series. The beautiful songstress, also known as Cat on Nickelodeon’s Sam & Cat, tackled Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing in front of President Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Right by her side to console the nervous singer before her performance was Patti LaBelle with a warm embrace. Can you imagine being the youngest singer in a room full of great talent, having Patti LaBelle give you her blessing? What a moment! Ariana Grande definitely showed her age when she “what’s up” the first family, but she ended her set with a strong vocal performance:

Mr. President, Mrs. Obama…What’s up? How are you? Good to see ya. It’s good…is it all good? Alright, good.

Performers of the night included, Melissa Etheridge, Janelle Monae, Jill Scott, Tessanne Chin of The Voice, Ariana Grande, Patti LaBelle, as the R-E-S-P-E-C-T honoree of the night Aretha Franklin. Being President has its privileges! Man I can’t wait to see Jill Scott’s performance!
