No doubt about it, Gladys Knight gave tons of love to the audience at Proctors in Schenectady last Friday night, and they gave it right back to her… tenfold!
For this amazing lady of song – undeniably an American musical icon – Knight looked gorgeous when she stepped out on stage and took a bow to a house-wide standing ovation. Everybody there knew they were in the presence of musical royalty. And they were ecstatic to be her loyal listening subjects for the night.
Kicking off her set with “The Nitty Gritty,” Knight glided effortlessly along the front of the stage and sang with the verve and passion of a woman half her age.
