The Seven Time Grammy Award winning performer, has a relationship with her audience that’s special, in that she shares her thoughts and sings her songs to uplift everyone attending the show. But that’s not all, Gladys has her brother Merald “Bubba” Knight, one of the original Pips adding his share of comedy in the show, as well as some upbeat Marvin Gaye tunes.
