Today’s Funky Divas Friday post features 3 funky divas that went by the name of Stargard and their song, “(Theme Song From) Which Way Is Up.”

I remember this song and movie oh so well. The comedy, of the same name starred Richard Pryor playing 3 separate characters and is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen.

Here is Stargard’s Soul Train performance.

Today’s Funky Divas Friday post features 3 of the funkiest divas Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendrix and Sarah Dash collectively known as LaBelle singing their popular hit “Lady Marmalade.”

Here is their live performance on the Midnight Special back in 1975.

Today’s Funky Divas Friday post features 3 of the Pointer Sisters on a live recorded show back in the early 80’s. I would argue that The Pointer Sisters is the only musical group that can pull off singing Soul, Rock n Roll, Country, Jazz and Pop and never miss a beat.

I remember listening to these songs on my mother’s 45’s. Yes, on a record player! 🙂

Here’s The Pointer Sisters singing a medley, “Yes We Can Can/How Long (Betcha Got a Chick on the Side)”
