Wikipedia : This day (October 9, 1944), in Trenton, New Jersey, is born Nona Hendryx, an American vocalist, solo artist or one-third of the trio Labelle.
Nona Hendryx : Labelle racked up three gold albums and a number 1 worldwide hit with, “Lady Marmalade (Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi Ce Soir?).” Her solo efforts have been equally challenging.
@allmusic : After Labelle called it quits in 1976, Hendryx released her self-titled debut record, which was an amazingly strong amalgam of soul and hard rock.
@last.fm : Over the past three years Nona has worked with many young rappers/poets/hip hop artists ranging from a cameo appearance in an India Irie video to a duet with Bounty Killer to production and co-writes for a new film.
