Patti LaBelle is a busy woman! 

The singer has taken on two acting gigs.   

Not only will she appear on OWN TV’s Greenleaf but she’s also set to appear on Star on the Fox Network.

On Greenleaf she’ll play an old friend of Lady Mae Greenleaf.  Lady Mae is the First Lady of the church.  

According to Oprah’s website:

Patti LaBelle has been cast in the recurring role of "Maxine Patterson" in Season 3 of Greenleaf. Maxine is a famous Christian motivational speaker and the CEO of a global Christian self-help empire. An old friend of Mae's from college days, Maxine will be Lady Mae's sounding board and greatest ally as Mae attempts to consolidate her power at Calvary.

As for Star, she’s playing the mother of Queen Latifah’s character.
