Patti LaBelle Joins The Voice as Christina Aguilera's Advisor
Is it too much to hope for a “Lady Marmalade” duet?
“I adore Christina, so I was honored and excited when she invited me to be a part of her team and we had a ball working together!” LaBelle tells PEOPLE exclusively. “And there is so much talent on our team … everyone else better watch out!”
Aguilera, 35, took a break last season from the show to focus on her family (she welcomed daughter Summer Rain with fiancé Matt Rutler in 2014) and other projects.
“Working with Patti was a dream come true,” Aguilera tells PEOPLE. “She is my girl and she has a voice like no other! It was such a great experience to have her mentor my team and she has such a great way of giving advice in a way that is clear and direct yet gentle and constructive.”
“Dinner with @nbcthevoice family! U boys are the best brothers a girl could have,” she captioned the photo.
Season 10 of The Voice returns Feb. 29 at 8 p.m. on NBC.
