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.In her first effort since 2013s Another Journey Knights 8th solo effort this summer marked the release of Where My Heart Belongs, a new inspiration gospel album. Knight is a tw0-time Grammy winner in the gospel category, and Where My Heart Belongs dropped on September 9th from Deseret Book, and recently won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Gospel Album.Another Journey enjoyed success from the hit I Who Have Nothing as well as the up-tempo track Settle, produced by Randy Jackson, with whom she previously collaborated with on her Grammy-winning album, At Last. Knight also enjoyed the success of her song You and I Aint Nothin No More which appeared over the end credits of the critically-acclaimed Lee Daniels film THE BUTLER.Last month, Knight returned to the small screen in the Lifetime original movie Seasons of Love. In the story about two lovers as they journey through life, love and family, Knight stars alongside Oscar-nominee Taraji P. Henson and fellow Grammy winner Cliff Method Man Smith. In the New Year she will guest on Lee Daniels and FOX TVs new series Empire opposite Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson.Also on the small screen, Knight recently shared her musical expertise on the second season of Centrics original series Apollo Live. Joining judges Doug E. Fresh and Michael Bivins, the legendary songstress gave guidance to contestants as they took the stage with the hope to jumpstart their career in the entertainment industry.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 ABCs hit reality competition Dancing with the Stars for season 14, partnering with Tristan MacManus.The year of 2011 was a year of much recognition as Knight was both honoring and being honored, first at a Michael Jackson tribute concert, and then at the 2011 Soul Train Awards. At the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, Knight joined such performers as Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce, and Smokey Robinson in a tribute to the legendary King of Pop in a concert event called Michael Forever. Following that, Knight was honored with a Legend Award alongside fellow recipients Earth, Wind & Fire on the BET broadcast of the 3rd annual Soul Train Awards, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer.Knight, known as the Empress of Soul, a longtime Las Vegas resident, returned to the Strip in the late-2000s to the famed Tropicana Hotel for a special engagement that ran in the newly named Gladys Knight Theater, making her the first African-American performer to have a venue named after her in Las Vegas. This followed a successful four-year show run at The Flamingo, which the Las Vegas Review-Journal praised as the number-one show on the Strip. A tireless humanitarian, Knight is an iconic supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of America, to which she donated a Randy Jackson-produced song, The Dream. As the celebrated singer of the timeless song Midnight Train to Georgia, Knight was a natural fit as national spokesperson and host of Amtraks National Train Day, the celebration of which took place Washington, DCs famed Union Station.In February 2011, Knight reunited with Elton John, Dionne Warwick, and Stevie Wonder for the first time in 25 years to perform their Grammy-winning song, Thats What Friends Are For at an AIDS research benefit at the downtown Cipriani in New York. Adored the world over, Knight then toured across the UK, performing at packed arenas that included a sold-out performance at Wembley Stadium.Knight fans enjoyed Before Me Knights last big commercial effort which paid homage to the great legends of song Ella, Duke, Billie,
