The great ones endure, and Gladys Knight has long been one of the greatest. Very few singers over the last 50 years have matched her unassailable artistry. This seven-time Grammy winner has enjoyed No. 1 hits in Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary genres, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance.

A humanitarian and philanthropist, Knight is devoted to various worthy causes, including the American Diabetes Association – for which she is a national spokeswoman – and the American Cancer Society, the Minority AIDS Project, amFAR and Crisis Intervention and The Boys and Girls Club.

Numerous organizations have honored Knight as well, including the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Congress of Racial Equality and B’Nai Brith. She recently reeived BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Knight and husband, William, along with various other members of the family, oversee her busy career from the Las Vegas headquarters of Shakeji Inc., her personal entertainment corporation. She is a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, performer, restaurateur and businesswoman with a spiritual outlook on her life. Her faith in God has been the driving force behind all of Knight’s endeavors, guiding her through her many successes.
