Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle Announced for Next Verzuz Battle


Gladys Knight and Patti LaBelle are set to square off against one another on the next episode of the Verzuz battle series, the show announced Tuesday.


Calling their upcoming showdown on Sunday at 5 pm PT/8 pm ET the "Master Class we’ve ALL been waiting for," the program's Twitter account insisted that viewers have "gotta get dressed up in ya Sunday’s best for this classic affair" between the two singers who, along with Dionne Warwick, previously collaborated on the hit “Sisters in the Name of Love.”


Speaking of Brandy and Monica's competition, Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris made a surprise appearance during their matchup on August 31, encouraging those watching to vote in the upcoming election on Nov. 3.


You queens, you stars, you icons," said Harris, 55, when she appeared via video chat on a monitor between Brandy, 41, and Monica, 39, who sat in chairs on a stage.


“I said to Dolly, ‘Oh yes, I want to do that song, honey!’ ” LaBelle recalled to Cohen, 52.


And while plenty of other artists have covered “I Will Always Love You,” LaBelle said she hasn’t out of respect for Whitney.
