She said: “Hey my sweet babies, happy Sunday everyone. I want to share something with you all. As I woke up this morning, I thought of people who have impacted my life. There is this one person who has such an impact on my life that what they gave me I have carried for the rest of my life. I hope I have a whole life ahead of me. Ever since I got that gift, I’ve carried it with me to this day.”

Mo’Nique continued their conversation by discussing how mesmerized LaBelle left her during the two-hour set. “Some of you already know this story, right. I was 17 years old over in Washington DC and I went to a concert to grow up… That concert was a Patti LaBelle concert. As I told you for two hours, I was mesmerized. I got blown away I was in awe to see this beautiful spirit on this stage.”

The 54-year-old added that LaBelle held a meet and greet at the bottom of the stage immediately after the performance. Mo’Nique described interactions with LaBelle and her fans as “sincere,” “beautiful,” and “so full of love,” as the “On My Own” singer hugged everyone at the concert.

She said: “I watched this woman hug each and every person as if it was hers and it was theirs. It was so real, it was so beautiful, it was so full of love.” Mo’Nique also revealed what happened when she finally got in line to meet LaBelle.

The hug the “The Parkers” star received from LaBelle, she said, felt like the ones her family members would give. Mo’Nique claimed that night, after that brief moment with LaBelle, that she vowed to herself if she was ever “able to hug people like that,” she would. Towards the end of the recording, Mo’Nique explained to her fans the power of hugs.

She said: “I say all this to say you never know what a hug can do for someone. So Ms. Patti LaBelle what that hug did for me, it filled me with so much joy and love that I said that when people say, ‘Can I have a hug, I really want to give back? Mo’Nique?” So hug someone today and hold on tight. Ms. Patti LaBelle, you taught me how to hug a baby.”

Alongside the upload, Mo’Nique captioned the photo: “WHAT A HUG CAN DO @mspattilabelle THANK YOU FOR SHOWING ME WHAT A REAL HUG IS TO FEEL HOW I LOVE US 4REAL.” Mo’Nique reveals the one gift Patti LaBelle gave her after a brief encounter years ago
