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).
Watch the original below, to get a sense of just what made this video about sweet potato pie so special:
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.
See his video of the R&B legend’s Thanksgiving below:
Questlove was even in the building:
Most People Just Bless The Food. We Blessed The Food Then Sang Entire Catalogues To The Bone & THEN Ate. @jameswrightchanel & @mspattilabelle finally make music together. Best #thanksgiving in a long time. I’m blessed to be living the dream & experiencing stuff like this. #FinallyPATTI #HappyThanksgiving
