Patti LaBelle performs on ABC's "The View" on May 7, 2015 on the ABC Television Network.

There are viral videos, and then there are viral videos. A pie review (yes, a pie review) for a Patti LaBelle-branded sweet potato pie (which is available in Walmart stores nationwide) has blown up over the past few weeks -- and to celebrate the video's success, LaBelle invited its author, YouTube celebrity James Wright, over for Thanksgiving yesterday (Nov. 26).

Wright added a review of Ms. LaBelle's Thanksgiving dinner to his Facebook, and even posted a video of the pair singing her hit "You Are My Friend." The icing on the cake? It was his birthday. “This has been the best Thanksgiving ever, and it’s also been the best birthday ever and I’m very very grateful,” he wrote in the caption.
