About Sisters In The Name Of Love

(1986, HBO)

Three of R&B’s greatest voices come together for the first time in Sisters in the Name of Love, an award-winning special starring Dionne Warwick, Patti LaBelle, and Gladys Knight.

This 90-minute concert was taped before a live audience and includes performances of 15 rhythm & blues, soul, and pop classics. Warwick, LaBelle, and Knight share the mic for a dozen songs and each contributes a solo. LaBelle – then in the midst of a career renaissance – delights the crowd with “New Attitude,” her inspirational chart-topper from the Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack. Warwick performs a soulful rendition of her Grammy-wining 1979 hit “I’ll Never Love This Way Again.” And Knight sings a torchy “I Will Survive” that reimagines the Disco anthem as a bluesy ballad.


The ladies are also featured in candid conversation, chatting about their lifelong friendship and issues that inspire their music. Sisters in the Name of Love concludes with the three legends joining voices on “That’s What Friends Are For,” a powerful finale to a show that will have you tapping your feet and drying your eyes.
