I started listening to Gladys Knight, the Empress of Soul, in the mid 1960’s. She is 74 years old, in this mosaic she is approximately 62, she has been performing through her teenage and adult life for almost sixty years. And she still has strong vocals and a hard working performing style. She just performed at the Super Bowl this year.
The first song she sang that really resonated with me was ‘ I Neither One of Us’ that she made with her original group Gladys Knight and the Pips in the 60’s.When I start a new mosaic, I start listening to a lot of music from that artist. Here are some songs I like, The Nitty Gritty, I Don’t Want To Do Wrong, Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me, The Way we Were, and I Hope You Dance. She along with the Pips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
