The Empress of Soul is making a grand appearance at Spirit Mountain Casino on Friday, April 3rd at 8pm. After you buy your tickets, we’ve got five iconic Gladys Knight songs that will tide you over until the big show!
"Midnight Train to Georgia"
This 1974 Grammy Award winning track brings out the inner romantic in us all. Since debuting as a #1 single over four decades ago, it continues to be that song that everyone turns up when it comes on the radio.
"That's What Friends Are For"
Gladys Knight teamed up with Stevie Wonder,Elton John, and Dionne Warwick to create this rousing tune, which dominated the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 for four whopping weeks. Piano, harmonica, and the powerful vocals of Knight make this track unforgettable.
"I Heard It Through the Grapevine"
Gladys Knight & the Pips were the first to bring this iconic song to the airwaves. Since then, it's been covered by everyone from Marvin Gaye to Creedence Clearwater Revival and holds a coveted place in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
"Neither One of Us"
This tearjerker of a song continues to tug at heartstrings decades after it debuted in 1973. Since then, it's won a Grammy Award, topped the Billboard Hot 100, and scored a permanent spot on our "Most Played" iTunes playlist.
“You’re the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me”
One million copies of this soulful single disappeared off shelves when it first debuted. We can understand why: The track might just be one of the most romantic songs out there.
When Mariah Carey inducted Gladys Knight into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she noted, “She's like a textbook to learn from. You hear her delivery, and you wish you could communicate with as much honesty and emotion as she does."
Spirit Mountain is so excited to have the expert take the stage at the Main Event Center, and we hope you’ll be there to see the epic performance unfold!
