Glady Knight is returning to Wilmington and the campus of Cape Fear Community College on July 25, 2018!
Georgia-born Knight began singing gospel music at age four at the Mount Mariah Baptist Church and sang as a guest soloist with the Morris Brown College Choir. At seven years-old, she won the grand prize on television’s “Ted Mack’s Original Amateur Hour,” and the following year, ‘The Pips’, named in honor of their cousin/manager James Pip Woods, was formed.
A tireless performer who still wows audiences around the world, Knight is a Seven-time Grammy Winner who has recorded more than 38 albums over the years and has enjoyed #1 hits on the Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary charts. In 1995, Knight earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and the next year, Gladys Knight & The Pips were inducted into the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Fame. In 1998, she and The Pips were presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Rhythm & Blues Hall of Fame.
A humanitarian and philanthropist, Knight is devoted to various worthy causes, including the American Diabetes Association – for which she is a national spokesperson, the American Cancer Society, the Minority AIDS Project, amFAR and Crisis Intervention, and The Boys and Girls Club. She has been honored by numerous organizations as well, including the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), B’Nai Brith, and is a recent recipient of BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
