Gladys Knight at the Global Event Center
04/12/2019 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM$35.00
Empress of soul.
You may have heard of Gladys Knight through the grapevine, but head to the WinStar Global Event Center on Friday, April 12 at 8 p.m. to hear this dynamic performer in person.
Gladys Knight’s fame began at age seven after she won the Ted Mack’s The Original Amateur Hour talent contest in 1952. Forming a group with her siblings and a cousin, she became the lead singer of the Pips. Gladys Knight and the Pips then went on to become the de facto soundtrack of the 1960s and 1970s, with 9 GrammyⓇ nominations and two wins for their R&B songs.
After transitioning to her solo career, Knight continued to be a force in soul, R&B and gospel music. What else says you’ve made it like recording a Bond title theme, which Knight did for License to Kill in 1989? With over 50 years of performing, Gladys Knight’s hits, like “Midnight Train To Georgia,” “Love Overboard” and “Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye)” will be sure to wow you.
Doors for the performance of this living legend open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m.
