Gladys Knight And The Saints Unified Voices

One of the great soul singers, Gladys Knight was a performer from her childhood years, forming the Pips with her brother Merald and a couple cousins. They made the Top Ten in 1961 with the heavily doo wop-influenced "Every Beat of My Heart," and recorded some fine, nowadays overlooked pop-soul sides for the Fury and Maxx labels in the early and mid-'60s, sometimes under the direction of songwriter Van McCoy. A couple singles from this period, "Letter Full of Tears" and "Giving Up," made the Top 40, but Knight didn't hit her commercial stride until she moved to Motown in 1966. Steeped in the gospel tradition, like so many soul singers, Knight & the Pips developed into one of Motown's most dependable acts, although they never quite scaled the commercial or artistic heights of fellow stars on the label like the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, and the Temptations. With Norman Whitfield providing the production and much of the songwriting, the Pips fit into the mainstream of Motown's machine well, scoring big hits with some rabble-rousers (like "Friendship Train" and the original version of "I Heard It Through the Grapevine"), mainstream midtempo soul ("It Should Have Been Me" and "The End of Our Road"), and smooth ballads like "If I Were Your Woman."

In 1973, Knight had her biggest Motown hit with "Neither One of Us," which made number two; shortly afterward, she and the Pips left Motown for Buddah. The group members were briefly superstars in 1973-1974, reeling off the smashes "Midnight Train to Georgia" (their only number one), "I've Got to Use My Imagination," and "Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me." This ranked as some of their best material, but Knight soon moved toward an easy listening, adult contemporary direction, one that she's maintained to this day. Now performing separately from the Pips (who have retired), her days as a high-charting star ended after the mid-'70s, although she remains fairly popular, and maintained an active recording career into the new millennium, releasing At Last, an album of urban R&B, on MCA in 2000; One Voice, a gospel set, on Many Roads Records in 2005; and Before Me, an album of jazz standards, on Verve in 2006. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

My brother is one of the voices on this album.
This woman is giving praise to our God in heaven. I'm thankful to relate religiously with a fantastic person.

As long as God Is lifted up He will do the drawing that was a promise and music is the voice of God, Gladys keep singing His praise and He will do the rest.

Yes Danny, she is currently a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly mis-named Mormon Church; Mormon is believed to be a person who anciently compiled what is called the Book of Mormon).

She is inspiring!!!
I don't know if this is true or not, but I have heard she is now a Mormon. Kind of odd when you think of a gospel singer being Mormon,

She gives increased meaning to gospel music, a spirit that transcends this world.
Have loved Gladys Knight since I was a child! Her voice is just awesome. So glad she's back to her roots.
This is a fantastic album. I really enjoy every song.
One Voice with GladysKnight is wonderful!
