Labelle reunion is on

NEW YORK, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- The three members of the glam-rock group Labelle say they are prepared but nervous going into their first New York performance in 32 years.

Members of the band that recording the 1974 hit "Lady Marmalade" said performing at the Apollo Theater in New York Dec. 19 will mark the culmination of their cautious reunion endeavor, the New York Daily News reported Saturday.

"We were all concerned about matching such a high bar," lead group songwriter Nona Hendryx said. "And having not worked together for so long -- and having grown as people and musicians -- we didn't know if we would have the same sound, or if we could match the power of what we did back then."

Hendryx said her upcoming performance with fellow Labelle alums Patti LaBelle and Sarah Dash also will include politically charged songs about today's world.

"We like performing those sorts of songs," Hendryx told the Daily News. "We always felt like we had something to say as a group. We still do."
