Yet another musical legend is joining the cast of American Horror Story. TV Line reports that Patti LaBelle has joined the cast of AHS: Freak Show for a four-episode arc. The Godmother of Soul will play a local townsperson — and mother of Gabourey Sidibe’s character —  who, per TV Line, “begins to unravel the murderous secrets of Twisty the clown killer.” Unfortunately, LaBelle isn’t expected to sing in the role, but we’ll always have Stevie.
