The Bologna Performing Arts Center at Delta State University announces a special addition to the 2017-18 lineup — the “Empress of Soul,” Gladys Knight.
Knight, a winner of seven GRAMMY Awards, possesses one of the richest voices in pop music. She will perform live in concert March 22 at 7:30 p.m. on the BPAC’s main stage.
The concert is locally sponsored by the Bolivar Medical Center.
In the late 1960s and 1970s, Knight created a string of memorable hits, including “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “Neither One of US (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye),” “You’re the Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me,” and “Midnight Train to Georgia.” Rolling Stone magazine listed her among the 100 greatest singers of all time, and she’s a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Knight has enjoyed No. 1 hits in pop, gospel, R&B and adult contemporary, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance. She loves to perform, beaming her trademark smile as she connects with audiences on an intimately emotional level.
Tickets to see Knight are on sale now at www.bolognapac.com or by contacting the BPAC Ticket Office at 662-846-4626.
