Sweet Potato pie loving James Wright gets ultimate birthday present: Thanksgiving with Patti LaBelle!

Yesterday after Thanksgiving dinner, I made several of my family members watch James Wright’s viral video about Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pies.

You could say I’m obsessed with the video that has led to WalMart stores not being able to keep the suddenly red-hot pies in stock.

Well, it turns out Miss LaBelle – who had seemed reluctant to give Wright the full credit he deserves for the explosion in sales – invited James to have Thanksgiving with her at her home in Philadelphia.

He writes on Facebook: ‘This has been the best Thanksgiving ever and it’s also been the best birthday ever and I’m very very grateful.And at this point in my life I’m kind of speechless but we serve an awesome God a God that can change your life around in less than a second I seek Him so I can be more and more like Him daily like I always say when I’m done the whole world is going to be smiling. Thankyou Ms. Patti Labelle’

It was also James’ birthday so Patti sang him a birthday song and gave him a Louis Vuitton duffel bag as a present because, she said, ‘he is going to be a world traveler.’

LaBelle added, ‘God has brought another baby angel into my life.’

Below is James and Patti singing and dancing together along with the original video that started it all:
