Gladys Knight Background

Hailing from Atlanta Georgia gifted singer and actress Gladys Knight set out on the path to success when she was young. At the tender age of four, she began singing at the Mount Mariah Baptist Church in her hometown. She then performed on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour on TV and claimed a prize.

At the age of eight in 1952, the entrepreneurial Knight established "the Pips" along with her sister, brother and cousins. Gladys lent her signature vocals and the Pips contributed the beautiful harmonies and clever dance routines. It didn't take them long to cultivate a following on what was coined as the "Chitlin Circuit in the South. They often opened for coveted acts like Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson.

Whistle My Love was the group's debut single (1957). But the Pips didn't land a hit until they started cutting records with Motown in the '60s. They collaborated with producer/songwriter Norman Whitfield. I Heard it Through the Grapevine (1967) put them on the map. Appealing to both R&B and pop fans, I Heard it Through the Grapevine was later done by Marvin Gaye.

They claimed a boost in popularity with the success of singles like Friendship Train, Nitty Gritty and If I Were Your Woman. They also upped their exposure through appearances with the Motown Revue and on TV shows.

In 1973, Knight and the Pips exited Motown to move over to Buddah Records. Their final Motown single earned the group a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance.

Now officially recognized as Gladys Knight and the Pips, the group was soaring high in the '70s. With three gold singles credited to their name, the group was carving a successful niche on the music scene.

In 1974, the group kept their momentum going with the soundtrack for the film, Claudine. Their 1975 album, I Feel a Song, featured their hit rendition of The Way We Were.

Also in 1975, Knight and the Pips put on their own TV special, and a year later, they appeared in the film, Pipe Dreams. They cut the record for the movie soundtrack as well. Knight eventually shared the screen with Flip Wilson in the situation comedy, Charlie & Co.

The new decade of the '80s, three reunion albums arrived: About Love (1980); Touch (1982); and Visions (1983), landing hits with tracks like You're Number One, Save the Overtime for Me and Landlord.

In 1988, Gladys Knight and the Pips issued their final album together, All Our Love. It contained the Grammy-winning song, Love Overboard. The following year Knight exited the group to work on her solo career. She cut the title song for the James Bond flick, Licence to Kill (1989). She additionally released the album A Good Woman (1990), which included divas Patti Labelle and Dionne Warwick.

Knight continued to work on records and tour throughout the '90s. Just For You garnered critical acclaim, recognizing her strong vocals. Knight also pursued acting. She had a regular role on 1994's New York Undercover. She also made guest appearances on JAG and Living Single. In 2009, she took a role in I Can Do Bad All By Myself - a Tyler Perry film.

Although Knight is no longer burning up the charts with her songs, she continues to step into the recording studio. She once said, "Since I've been so wonderfully blessed, I really want to share and to make life at least a little better. So every chance I get to share the gospel or uplift people, I will take full advantage of that opportunity."

In 2005, she worked with the Saints United Voices for her gospel album, One Voice. And her 2006 work, Before Me, additionally was well-received.
