I helped record Patti Labelle these past two days. It's never easy to act normal around a legend at first. Even in the comfort of your own studio. I've set up vocal mics for singers thousands of times, but somehow you second guess every last move when you're setting up a mic for someone who is not only an international star, but someone who has recorded with the best of them.
So now I can officially say that both Michael McDonald and I have worked in the studio with Patti Labelle, and I think that's pretty cool.
"Yes, Ms. Labelle... I promise I've done this before.."
