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 has enjoyed #1 hits in Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance.
Known as the “Empress of Soul,” Gladys Knight burst onto the Motown music scene in the late sixties with her group Gladys Knight & the Pips, with Knight singing lead 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 era, like “Every Beat of My Heart,” “Letter Full of Tears,” “I Heard it Through the Grapevine”, “Neither One of Us (Wants to be the First to Say Goodbye),” “I’ve Got to Use My Imagination,” “Best Thing to Ever Happen to Me” and the #1 smash “Midnight Train to Georgia,” establishing Gladys Knight and The Pips as the premiere pop/R&B vocal ensemble in the world. All told, Knight has recorded more than 35 albums over the years, including eleven solo albums.
On the small screen, she has guest starred on the Fox Television series "Empire;" shared musical expertise and advice with contestants on "Apollo Live," an original series on BET's Centric channel; and put on her dancing shoes for season 14 of "Dancing with the Stars." Those are just her most recent small screen appearances — her acting roles spanned 1970s and '80s TV sitcoms and films. For the big screen, she recorded the title theme for the 1989 James Bond movie, "License to Kill." She’s also starred in and created movie soundtracks for a host of other films.
Today, Knight and husband William, along with various other members of the family, oversee her busy career from the Las Vegas headquarters of Shakeji, Inc., her personal entertainment corporation. She is a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, performer, restaurateur, and businesswoman with a spiritual outlook on her life. Her faith in God has been the driving force behind all of Knight’s endeavors, guiding her through her many successes.
