About the Event.

Seven-time Grammy Award-winner and living legend Gladys Knight has been captivating audiences around the world since her early days as lead vocalist of Gladys Knight and the Pips. They rocketed to fame during the Motown era with the smash hits "I Heard it Through the Grapevine," "Midnight Train to Georgia" and "If I Were Your Woman." These incomparable records eventually earned them an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the mid-90s, as well as multiple Grammy Awards. A tireless performer who still wows audiences around the world, Knight's unparalleled career includes more than 38 albums, with No. 1 singles in pop, R&B and adult contemporary music. She recently began a special multi-month engagement in the newly-minted Gladys Knight Theater at the Tropicana Las Vegas and has begun work on a new album with producer Randy Jackson. Her recent single "Settle" was featured in Tyler Perry's film "For Colored Girls." Knight also added an appearance in Perry's "I Can Do Bad All by Myself" and a cameo on the Emmy-winning television comedy "30 Rock" to her acting credits.
