The “Empress of Soul” will be reigning supreme over the Wind Creek Casino Amphitheater. Gladys Knight has transcended the generations with her pristine brand of soul.
This seven-time Grammy winner was signed to the Motown line-up in the late ’60s, along with her backing band The Pips. From there, she began to release a string of hits including “Midnight Train to Georgia” and “Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye).”
Over the years, Knight has continued to work in a variety of manners. First, she is touring in support of her latest album “Another Journey.” She is also starring in the sitcom “The First Family.”
Knight has been feeding the masses nationwide with her chain of chicken & waffles restaurants (Gladys Knight & Ron Winan’s Chicken & Waffles). Finally, she is known for her philanthropic work with organizations such as the American Diabetes Association, Congress of Racial Equality, Boys & Girls Club of America and many more.
