Happy Birthday to Gladys Knight! Knight, also known as the "Empress of Soul", is an American R&B / Soul singer and songwriter. She was born on this day (May 28) in 1944.
Gladys Knight And The Pips were incredibly popular in the 1960s and 1970s. Their song and dance style of performance was an influence on others in those days, for serious and fun entertainment. It has also been copied and imitated, especially these days, for humorous purposes.
There is no denying that this lady is one of the best singers ever. For this 'Today's Tune', I've chosen to honor her by posting one of her most popular songs. Please enjoy "Midnight Train To Georgia", a 1973 single by Gladys Knight And The Pips.
