Patti LaBelle sure knows how to connect with her super fans. ;

In November, James Wright Chanel sang his way to viral YouTube stardom ;when he first tried Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pies. ;Now he’ll whip some up alongside the legendary diva on her holiday cooking show on the Cooking Channel, People reports. ;

Patti’s Pies are practically stuff of legend. The pies ;sold out at all Walmart locations ;(and caused an eBay frenzy) the same weekend after Chanel’s video published last month.

Since then, Chanel and LaBelle have gotten quite friendly, ;even celebrating Thanksgiving together.

“It’s one of those blessed stories,” LaBelle told People. “For his birthday, which is Thanksgiving, we were at my home. ;I invited him to dinner before I even met him.”

Chanel ended his initial video review telling LaBelle, “you are my friend.” But after getting to know the songstress personally, he began calling her ;”momma.”

Their newfound relationship won’t end in the kitchen. ;The duo reportedly has plans to perform in a concert together. ;

“We’re going to perform in more ways than one,” LaBelle told People.”He can be my lead singer and I’ll be his background singer.”

The LaBelle-Chanel holiday special will air Dec. 16 on the Cooking Channel. ;
