LaBelle’s pies skyrocketed to fame back in 2015, through social media after super-fan James Wright reviewed one of her sweet potato pies on YouTube. The video went viral garnering over five million views and increased interest in LaBelle’s products causing a frenzy with the pies selling out in record time.
The two have stayed in touch since the viral video with LaBelle surprising him with a birthday tribute and inviting Wright to join her for her Thanksgiving celebrations at her home. Wright has also starred as the special guest for LaBelle’s special series showing viewers how to make the perfect sweet potato pie with The Cooking Channel.
