Gladys Maria Knight (born May 28, 1944), known as the "Empress of Soul", is an American singer-songwriter, actress, businesswoman, humanitarian, and author. She is best known for the hits she recorded during the 1960s and 1970s, for both the Motown and Buddah Records labels, with her group Gladys Knight & the Pips, the most famous incarnation of which also included her brother Merald "Bubba" Knight and her cousins Edward Patten and William Guest.
It's been a long wait for the "Empress of Soul", but she's finally made the Board.
I must confess, I've been fantasizing about Gladys for many, many years. Yes, LadyLoveMan is back!
