CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Living legend Patti LaBelle is visiting two area Kroger locations this week to celebrate Black History Month.

LaBelle, a Grammy-winning entertainer and founder of Lady Marmalade, a line of sauces, marinades and spices, is asking local communities to visit area African-American museums and cultural centers.

Kroger launched its 2012 Black History Month campaign to celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and commemorate the opening of his memorial in Washington, D.C.

On Wednesday, LaBelle visited the Queen City Centre Kroger on Kenard Avenue. She will be at the Norwood Kroger at 4500 Montgomery Road on Thursday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

LaBelle will hold a meet and greet with fans and customers. On Wednesday, she was joined by the SCPA choir and students from Rockdale Academy. On Thursday, she will be accompanied by the St. Bernard High School Choir and students from Evanston Academy.
