PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Patti LaBelle's current tour, ``The Gospel According to Patti,'' is being canceled, the singer announced Monday.

LaBelle, who cited differences with the tour's promoter, said she had a good relationship with sponsors and hoped to restart the tour.

``I really had hoped to continue to reach the gospel audience as we had originally planned,'' LaBelle said in a statement released by her publicist.

The tour, which began in October, had been scheduled to continue in Philadelphia, Cleveland and St. Louis, among other cities.
