Demonstrating once again that her interests go far beyond music, singer Patti LaBelle presents Patti's Pearls: Lessons in Living Genuinely, Joyfully, Generously. Along with Laura Randolph Lancaster, the r&b diva offers a slim volume of inspirational insights, or ""pearls,"" accompanied by personal anecdotes from her life. Some of the sayings are familiar (""Know God, know peace; no God, no peace"" and ""don't try to change the wind, change the sails""), while others are unique (""Barbie is a doll, not a goal"" and ""you can't be a doormat if you don't lie down"").
