Patti LaBelle Sweet Potatoe Pies Are Flying Off The Shelves

Managers at Walmart just can’t keep Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pie in stock.

Since last week, the grocery store has sold about $1 million worth of Patti’s Pie because of one man who claims the pie made him channel the Godmother of Soul.

James Wright– a fan of the singer–posted a hilarious musical online review of the pie on Facebook Friday praising her baking skills that since received more than 8 million views because of his hilarious presentation and amazing voice.


In the video Wright, who says he bought 5 pies, takes bites of the pie and then breaks out into song. “You turn into Patti after eating this,” he said.
