The great ones endure, and Gladys Knight has long been one of the greatest. Very few singers over the last fifty years have matched her unassailable artistry. This seven-time Grammy winner, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, has enjoyed #1 hits in Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance.
A tireless performer who still wows audiences around the country and the world, Knight also finds the time to make forays into film and television. Her version of “I Hope You Dance” was played during the end credits of Tyler Perry’s THE FAMILY THAT PREYS TOGETHER, and she has appeared in numerous films and television shows, along with being a guest judge and performer on FOX’s smash hit “American Idol.” No stranger to performing and light choreography over the course of her career, Knight raised the stakes when she put on her dancing shoes in the spring of 2012. She joined the cast of ABC’s hit reality competition “Dancing with the Stars” for season 14.
Best known as singing lead with Gladys Knight and The Pips, providing lush harmonies and graceful choreography, the group went on to achieve icon status, having recorded some of the most memorable songs of the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Top 20 hits, like “Midnight Train to Georgia”, “Every Beat of My Heart,” “Letter Full of Tears,”“I Heard it Through the Grapevine” and “If I Were Your Woman.”
Known as, the “Empress of Soul”, all told, Knight has recorded more than 38 albums over the years. In her first effort since 2013’s “Another Journey” – Knight’s 8th solo album – she is currently in the studio working on a new album, touring her live show and this summer, Knight will join the cast of Broadway musical “After Midnight.”
