The next Verzuz will be one for the books, as legends Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight will face off with their hits on Sunday September 13th to see who is the unofficial winner among viewers (who are the real winners here).
The event will take place at Philadephia’s Fillmore and will be simulcast on Instagram Live and Apple Music at 8 pm Eastern.
Launched by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland back in March, Verzuz has become a popular series as people shelter in place during the Covid-19 pandemic. In the early months of quarantine, various rappers, singers, producers and songwriters squared off remotely and cycled through multiple rounds of playing their hits, deep cuts and fan favorites. No winner is officially crowned during the telecast, although the thousands of viewers who tune in often crown their own winner on social media in the days following. Since partnering with Apple Music in July, the production has now moved to venues.
