GLADYS KNIGHT

The great ones endure, and GLADYS KNIGHT has long been one of the greatest. Very few singers over the last fifty years have matched her unassailable artistry. This seven-time Grammy winner has enjoyed #1 hits in pop, gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance.

Georgia-born, Knight began performing gospel music at age four in the Mount Mariah Baptist Church and sang as a guest soloist with the Morris Brown College Choir. Three years later, she won the grand prize on television’s “Ted Mack’s Amateur Hour,” and by the next year her mother created the group that would be known as Gladys Knight and the Pips. The iconic group went on to produce hits such as “Every Beat of my Heart,” “If I were Your Woman,” “Best Thing to Ever Happen to me,” and of course, “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

The Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of famer is also a humanitarian. Gladys is the national spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association, and works with many organizations including the Minority AIDS Project and the American Cancer Society, among others.

Opening Act: LUCY WOODWARD

Born in London, LUCY WOODWARD spent her childhood in New York and Holland. Fresh out of school, Lucy sang jazz in NYC’s West Village for tips, sang in cover bands and wrote songs before signing with Atlantic Records in 2003. She wrote Top-40 hits that earned her two BMI awards, and even appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, but she had no desire to be a pop starlet.

Her second album brought her back to her jazzier, blues roots. Billboard described how “Lucy’s a ball; equally appreciable for fans of melodic sing-song baubles and highbrow aficionados of finely honed musical composition.”

Lucy Woodward has also toured with Rod Stewart for many years singing background vocals and has sung on albums for Celine Dion, Nikka Costa, Chaka Khan and Joe Cocker.
