A seven-time Grammy Award-winner, Gladys Knight began her illustrious career as the lead vocalist of Gladys Knight & The Pips, with whom she recorded such hits as “Every Beat of My Heart,” “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” “If I Were Your Woman,” “Best Thing to Ever Happen to Me,” and the #1 smash “Midnight Train to Georgia.”
The Pips are not coming. But who cares. It’s Gladys Knight at the Paramount. What more could you want?
Before each show I get a quick report that gives a few details of the evening. It includes a brief description of the show. Here is the one for Gladys Knight at the Paramount on 2/19/2011:
One of the most instantly recognizable and loved voices in music. Featuring performances of the classic songs from her latest album, Before Me. Gladys has said, “I love anything that gets me to the people” — and the Paramount is getting her to you! Backed by one of the largest bands to grace our stage.
OK. How excited am I?
