Viral singer celebrates Thanksgiving with Patti LaBelle

Thanksgiving was extra special for the man whose viral video made Patti LaBelle's sweet potato pie famous. Singer James Wright Chanel spent his holiday at LaBelle's dinner table at her home in Philadelphia. 

On the menu for their big meal? Fried turkey, brisket, ribs, macaroni and cheese, and much more. Earlier this week, LaBelle told FOX 29 her spread would also include potato salad, 20 bunches of kale, four heads of cabbage, a green salad with arugula and cilantro, candied yams, peach cobbler, chocolate cake, leg of lamb, ribs, and of course her famous sweet potato pies!

LaBelle shared a selfie with Wright Chanel on her Instagram page. 



Happy Birthday @JamesWrightChanel and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
