An Evening With Gladys Knight
The Albany Civic Center in Downtown Albany is proud to welcome the “Empress of Soul,” Gladys Knight, on Sunday, February 26, 2023, at 7 p.m.
Georgia-born, this legendary American R&B and soul singer, actress, and philanthropist is most known for her work with her backing band, “The Pips.”
Knight began singing at the age of 4, and just three years later won the grand prize on “Ted Mack’s Amateur Hour.” The following year her mother created the group “The Pips,” which consisted of Gladys, her brother Bubba, her sister Brenda, and her cousins William and Eleanor Guest. The name came from their cousin and manager, James Pip Woods.
In 1959, Brenda and Eleanor left the group. They were replaced by cousin Edward Patten and friend Langston George, and Gladys Knight & The Pips was born.
Not many artists can say they have achieved what Gladys has in the last 50 years. The seven-time Grammy winner has enjoyed No. 1 hits, succeeded in television, and is a renowned philanthropist.
