This Christmas is the first holiday album released by singer Patti LaBelle on the MCA label. The album included original compositions such as "Twas Love", which LaBelle shot a video for, and "Nothing Could Be Better", which was sung live by LaBelle during an appearance on the show, A Different World, where she played Kadeem Hardison's mother. The album was released while LaBelle was working on a follow-up to her last pop album, Be Yourself. This would be LaBelle's only Christmas-related studio album until the release of Miss Patti's Christmas nearly 20 years.
Burnin' is the 1991 album by Patti LaBelle. It won the category of "Best Female R&B Vocal Performance" at the 1992 Grammy Awards jointly with a single by Lisa Fischer, an unusual event in the history of the Grammy Awards.
Be Yourself is the ninth solo album by American singer Patti LaBelle, released in 1989 on the MCA label, her second album with the company following 1986's platinum hit, Winner in You. The album features the single, "If You Asked Me To" (a US R&B top 10 single by LaBelle, later covered by Celine Dion), which is also featured on the soundtrack to the James Bond movie, Licence to Kill, and the top ten Prince-written hit, "Yo Mister"
Patti LaBelle's This Christmas is a likeable collection of easygoing holiday confections. The songs prove quite endearing, but in some cases are marred by somewhat dated production. If Every Day Could Be Like Christmas" finds LaBelle in a zombie-like trance, and "Angel Man," tacked onto the 1995 reissue of the album, is an ear-piercing ballad. The album's sole traditional track is "O Holy Night," which LaBelle delivers with all of her trademark full-throttle gusto. Oftentimes, holiday albums such as this - comprised of new, untraditional recordings - are somewhat tepid, but that's thankfully not the case here.

If you haven't watched Patti Labelle brilliantly charging through a rendition of "This Christmas" despite the fact that she doesn't know the words and her backup singers are MIA, you haven't lived. Even if you have seen it, you need to watch it again. Put up your angsty AIM Away Message and take your telephone with the 6-foot cord off the hook; you are busy, honey. Everything about this video is so perfect it's hard to know where to start. Here's the basic premise: 21 years ago this month, everyone on Earth failed Patti Labelle
