Patti Labelle Sings The Alphabet

Patti LaBelle and the Muppets sing "Gospel Alphabet."

"Gospel Alphabet" was performed on Sesame Street by Patti LaBelle and a chorus of Muppets. Little Chrissy plays the piano as Patti sings, and is soon joined by a crowd of Muppets, some with tambourines.

Labelle is joined by Baby Bear, Rosita, Telly, Zoe, Elmo, Prairie Dawn, Ernie, Bert, Grover, Count von Count, Cookie Monster, and Herry Monster.

There are two variations of this segment; one with Little Chrissy's lines intact and a shorter cut that excludes all of his dialogue (one line is cut, and another muted).

Notes

  • Toward the end of the song, Bert's eye fell off of the puppet's face.[1]
