Patti LaBelle Joins ‘American Horror Story’ Cast

FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Story just added an awesome new addition to its cast – the legendary Patti LaBelle.

You heard it right! The songstress is heading back to the small screen, where she will be playing the mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character.

In the new season, which centers on the last freak show in America, LaBelle’s character begins to uncover the murderous secrets of the town killer, Twisty the Clown. But she must be careful not to put herself in harm’s way.

Although she won’t be lending her vocal skills to the show, we’re excited to watch her on the series. Plus, Angela Bassett will be returning as well!

Check out the new season when it premieres this October.
