Gladys Knight's career has spanned more than five decades, making her a true musical icon and performer. The seven-time Grammy winner boasts No. 1 hits in pop, R&B and adult contemporary and also has made her mark in film, television and live performances.
Georgia-born Knight debuted in 1960 as the front-woman of the band Gladys Knight & The Pips. Their lush harmonies and graceful choreography led the group to achieve iconic status, having recorded some of the most memorable songs of the 1960s, '70s and '80s. Hits such as "Every Beat of My Heart," "Letter Full of Tears," "I Heard it Through the Grapevine" and "If I Were Your Woman" set the stage for an amazing run in the mid-1970s. Gladys Knight & The Pips solidified their status as a first-class musical ensemble with several Top 10 gold-certified singles like "Neither One of Us (Wants to be the First to Say Goodbye)," "I've Got to Use My Imagination" and "Midnight Train to Georgia."
In 1995, Knight earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the next year, Gladys Knight & The Pips were inducted into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame. In 1997, Gladys Knight & The Pips were honored yet again when presented with the lifetime achievement award from the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame. In 2004, Knight received the lifetime achievement award at the annual BET awards ceremony.
