ABKCO Sets Release of Lyric Video for Bobby Womack + Patti LaBelle’s “Love Has Finally Come At Last” From Womack’s THE POET II Breakthrough Album

Radio Facts: “Love Has Finally Come At Last” by Bobby Womack and Patti LaBelle, a new lyric video in ABKCO’s ongoing series of E Single Video posts, will be released on May 22nd in celebration of Patti LaBelle’s birthday two days later.  The evocative video, directed by the Able Media Ltd. The London-based team of Nick Barratt, Ned Miles, Michael Anderson, and Lee Gregory, was produced by Robin Klein and Dina Kanner with executive producer Julian Klein. 

The track was a massive R&B hit, breaking into Billboard’s Top 3 in 1984 as well as having had an impact on the pop charts at that time. Written by Bobby Womack and Patrick Moten, it’s one of the highlights of the triology of records released in the 80’s by Womack from The Poet Series . Acknowledged as one of Womack’s mid-career commercial and artistic triumphs, it was originally released on the Beverly Glen label.  The album was produced by Andrew Oldham and James Gadsen with “Love Has Finally Come At Last” as one of three duets between the soul music legends. 

Womack’s career spanned six decades and saw him perform, record, and write songs in a diverse array of genres including gospel, rock ‘n’ roll, r&b, soul, pop, jazz, blues, and even country.  In 2009 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones.  Womack passed away in 2014.  

 Patti LaBelle is a multiple Grammy Award winner and recipient of BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award.  She continues to tour and just last year was honored by her hometown of Philadelphia with the naming of Patti LaBelle Way.
