“I got a phone call from jazz legend George Duke, who I idolized and never imagined would have a reason to call me. He said, Shaun, I love your new song, ‘Remember My Love.’ ” LaBelle wrote that song while a staff writer for L.A.’s Warner Chappell Music Publishing.

LaBelle didn’t believe the caller was Duke. “I thought it was my big brother Lance playing a prank, and I hung up the phone. George called back again, and I hung up on him again. He called back and said if I hung upon him again, he wasn’t going to put the song on the new Everette album. I decided it wasn’t Lance,” said LaBelle.

These shows — at 7 and 9 p.m. Aug. 27-28 — are smack dab in the middle of the State Fair. LaBelle isn’t worried: “I don’t think that’s our crowd. “
