From The Vault: Patti Labelle & Mariah Carey Perform ‘Got To Be Real’

As vocal legends go, few come more equipped than Patti Labelle and Mariah Carey.

Though from different eras, the dynamite diva’s have made it routine to honor one another at many points in their illustrious careers.

One of their most celebrated showings serves as this week’s From The Vault pick – their performance during Labelle’s ‘Live One Night Only’ TV special in 1998.

Together, the powerhouses blew the roof off the venue with a rendition of Cheryl Lynn‘s 1978 Disco classic ‘Got To Be Real’.

Watch the icons trade belts, whistles, and sass above…

    I´ve never cared too much for this performance. But it´s really cute how great their relationship is from the start.
    ps: I´m adicted to the album *plays “Supernatural”*

    Her voice was starting to deteriorate here. Shame she didn’t take care of her GIFT! The Lord giveth and The Lord taketh away. Patti is still kicking at 70 years old though. Shame, shame, shame!

    Who are these two cows? They might have been huge back then but now they are flops nobody even knows who patti is and mariah is flopping so hard with her 56k

    • BEYHIVE_MINAJ June 8, 2014

      Nobody knows who Patti is? Girl,how old are you? And you have the audacity to say that as an Ariana stan. I can’t and I won’t. You just dragged yourself.

    ANOTHER shady post about Mariah Carey from TGJ!
    This is during the time where Mimi’s LIVE vocals started to get weaker & Sam want’s to use this LIVE performances out of all her vocal moments as a FROM THE VAULT! Anyways, very & I mean very few singers can overshadow PATTI LABELLE on stage but Mimi held her own…
    Sam, If you wanna use a From The Vault Video From Mariah… You should’ve used this one…

      • Stephy June 8, 2014

        This performances is not as good as her 1990 – 1996 vocals.. sorry..

  9. Sleazy June 8, 2014

    Wasn’t her best but she did it. SANG

  11. Nana June 8, 2014

    Actually they edited.

    Original version of this video

    Mariah’s vocal was so horrible..

    Couldn’t hit the note just use typical high note again..

    • Excuse ME June 8, 2014

      Umm.. Actually they edited out her high note so quite lying. She hit the note but they edited it out. Smh.It wasn’t a planned performance so she let Patti have her moment.
