Patti LaBelle is releasing a new Christmas album next month and she’s recruited some special friends to contribute to the project.

American Idol season 2 winner Ruben Studdard, actress and gospel singer Tamela Mann and R&B artist Vivian Green are among the guests on Patti LaBelle and Friends — Home for the Holidays, which hits stores on November 24. This is LaBelle’s third holiday release, following This Christmas in 1990 and Miss Patti’s Christmas in 2007.

The 14-song collection includes LaBelle and Mann singing “Jesus King!” as well as Studdard featured on “Let It Snow” and “Avé Maria,” and Green duetting with gospel singer Jamar Jones on a rendition of “My Favorite Things.”

LaBelle, of course, is also famous for her cooking and baking, especially her sweet potato pies. The second season of her cooking show, Patti LaBelle’s Place, will return to the Cooking Channel on November 26.
