Born Gladys Maria Knight on 28th May, 1944 (Atlanta Georgia)

Eight years since my first birthday post on SotW, time I think for another clip with my favourite version of ‘I Heard It Through the Grapevine’ - lip-synced several years after the song’s recording in front of a not overly enthusiastic German audience, but in very nice quality (1972?)

‘On and On’ - written and produced by Curtis Mayfield for the 1974 film “Claudine”; lip-synced on “Soul Train”
I’ve not seen the film, but I see that it has been posted in full on YT (apparently with over 8 million views) ... udine.html

Gladys was younger than the Pips -

Merald “Bubba” Knight (Gladys’ brother) born 4 September, 1942
William Guest (Gladys’ cousin) (2 July, 1941 - 24 December, 2015)
Edward “Eddie” Patten (Gladys’ cousin) (24th August, 1939 - 25th February, 2005)
