Patti LaBelle's Christmas Improv

Postby Darkness_Fish » 07 Dec 2017, 10:28

This is pretty old, but I've never seen it before:

Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I love Patti and I've seen it. They didn't have the cue cards right or anything. She tried. What else was she supposed to do?

She can make a performance out of the alphabet.

I’ve forgot that particular lyric
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

That's what makes it, she soldiers on, and even smiles throughout. I think she does a great job, better than storming off in a huff about lack of professionalism.
