Six years after making her debut in Curaçao the ‘Enpress of Soul’ is returning to the island. Gladys Knight
began her career at a very young age: she won a TV talent show at age 7 and formed The Pips a year later. As Gladys Knight & The Pips the band was signed to the renowned Motown label and had most of their hits, such as I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Midnight Train To Georgia, and Baby Don’t Change Your Mind
, in the 1960s and 1970s. At the end of the 1980s Knight started her solo career and found instant success with the James Bond title track License To Kill
. She didn’t stick to just singing, but also made a name as an actress and entrepeneur, and did a lot of charity work. Her latest album, Where My Heart Belongs
, was released in 2014 and is a bona fide gospel album, on which The Pips also performed. Knight now has seven Grammy’s and numerous other awards to her name.
