From her beginnings with Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles (the sweethearts of The Apollo Theater, inducted into
The Rhythm & Blues Foundations' Hall of Fame in 1999) to Labelle (a trio made up of Patti LaBelle, Nona and
Sarah Dash), the groundbreaking rock funk band of the 70s, and followed by a stunning solo career, Nona
Hendryx has always been on the cutting edge of music.
Her songs are edgy, provocative, political and full of double entendres and empowering messages, which enabled
the trio to break the traditional girl group mould. Labelle's stage show was the forerunner of today's epic
productions, they were the only contemporary black group to take their 'Wear Something Silver' show to New
York's prestigious Metropolitan Opera House and to major theatres and Opera Houses across the world
