Very few singers over the last 50 years have matched Gladys Knight’s supreme artistry. This seven-time Grammy winner has enjoyed number one hits in pop, gospel, R&B, and adult contemporary. Born in Georgia, Knight began her career at the tender age of four singing gospel music in church. As a teen, Knight led The Pips to stardom, providing lush harmonies and graceful choreography. From “Midnight Train to Georgia” to “That’s What Friends Are For,” Knight has recorded some of the most beloved songs of the century. Knight recently released her eighth solo effort, Where My Heart Belongs, a new inspiration gospel album.
- Speaking of midnight trains, Knight is the national spokesperson and host of Amtrak’s National Train Day.
- Knight stars in the Lifetime original movie Seasons of Love alongside Oscar-nominee Taraji P. Henson and fellow Grammy winner Cliff “Method Man” Smith.
- In 2011, Knight reunited with Elton John, Dionne Warwick, and Stevie Wonder for the first time in 25 years to perform their Grammy-winning song, “That’s What Friends Are For” at an AIDS research benefit in New York.
This concert will run approximately 90 minutes with no intermission.
