Gladys Knight

Gladys Knight

By any measure, Gladys Knight is one of the greatest Soul singers of all time.  Her expressive, powerful voice became the model for two generations of singers from Jennifer Holliday to Alicia Keys, and her work with the Pips stands tall among the best Soul music of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Born and raised in Georgia, Knight showed her impressive vocal talent early, winning on Ted Mack’s Amateur Hour as a child.  As a pre-teen in the 50s, she formed a singing group with brother Bubba and cousins William Guest and Edward Patten, a group that would later be called Gladys Knight and the Pips.
