Gladys Knight

Pop, Singer-Songwriter, Soul

Last year at the Ordway, Knight kept the band and the audience waiting for an awkward ten minutes, then came out and steadily dismantled the notion that his 75-year old, 7-time Grammy winner was going to coast on the mere nostalgia of her formidable catalog of R&B-goes-to-church hits. This winter’s string of performances on the television show The Masked Singer reinforced her ongoing vivacity. Fans old and new will not be disappointed.
