Event Details

Six years after making her debut in Curaçao the ‘Enpress of Soul’ is returning to the island. Gladys Knight began her career at a very young age: she won a TV talent show at age 7 and formed The Pips a year later. As Gladys Knight & The Pips the band was signed to the renowned Motown label and had most of their hits, such as I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Midnight Train To Georgia, and Baby Don’t Change Your Mind, in the 1960s and 1970s. At the end of the 1980s Knight started her solo career and found instant success with the James Bond title track License To Kill. She didn’t stick to just singing, but also made a name as an actress and entrepeneur, and did a lot of charity work. Her latest album, Where My Heart Belongs, was released in 2014 and is a bona fide gospel album, on which The Pips also performed. Knight now has seven Grammy’s and numerous other awards to her name.
