Gladys Knight and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Most people can’t mention the name Gladys Knight without including a reference to The Pips. Gladys Knight and the Pips consisted of her brother and cousins, and performed together from the 1950’s-1980’s. Their trademark song was the #1 hit “Midnight Train to Georgia,” which won a GRAMMY in 1973 for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. Knight eventually parted ways with The Pips in 1989 and continues to perform as a solo artist.

Today, Knight is known as the “Empress of Soul,” and has recorded with notable artists such as Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Johnny Mathis and the late Ray Charles.
