    I just saw her in Florida yesterday and what is impressive is that although she has sung these same songs hundreds of times she always sings them fresh. It doesn’t sound like she is just going through the motions, being tired of singing the same songs. She gives each audience her best knowing they want to hear those same songs.

      Black people cant afford the concert tickets.

    • SantaBarbaraDianne

      Why are you talking about skin color?

    • Eric Claeyborn

      I’d love to be there while everyone else is taking in the singing of Gladys Knight… then I can enjoy it, too. I think it’s rude when she’s doing such a great concert and putting it all into it… and then everyone is loud and not really listening to her because they’re partying.

    • If the audience was making noise and someone here commented that they must be black, everybody would have been offended and called that racist. Racism goes both ways.

    I saw Ms Glayds lastnight in Atlantic City at Boardwalk Hall. AMAZING! I shouted ” I love you Gladys”. She replied ” I heard that, I love you too” That made my night! Her performance was the the best. I’m happy I got to witness her live show. Growing up, on Saturday our house was filled with Pine-Sol, and Gladys Knight. She was engaging, funny caring and GLADYS! A must see!

    Gladys ain’t playin’. That’s SCARY that she sounds JUST AS GOOD as she did over 40 FREAKIN’ YEARS AGO! What??….And that BAND is straight SMASHING! Man…I’m a fan all over again and I’m only 26! LOL

  13. Beyond The Veil With ABB a.k.a. AstralBooBaby

    I have never heard this legend sing out of tune or off key… She doesn’t seem to ever have an ‘off’ night… All of the singers out there will know what I am talking about 🙂 #QueenGladys

  14. Don Davenport

    Such beauty, style and grace… singing like yesterday was 40 something years ago… love this Lady and that heavenly voice…

  15. Darn Right

    The best of the best alto voice EVER Top shelf- High class performer and person. Sorry Aretha- Gladys Knight is the REAL Queen of Soul

  16. The most gifted voice I have ever heard. If the date is true she is 73 at this taping. God Bless her.

  17. Zack Parsons

    You can’t retain the quality of voice like she has done without good technique, healthy living habits, and valuing the voice like a precious gift. She can still do it at this incredible level because she has lived her life intelligently for that purpose. She knows what she
    has. Love her.

  18. Angelique Hogan

    Okay she might be the bumblebee on the masked singer

    • Jasmine Poulson

      I was thinking the same thing… I came here to compare the two

    • Tom Wilson

      I’m certain of it. Her nickname is “The Empress of Soul.” And The Bee said, “you can call me The Empress.”

      Also, listen to the “Somewhere” 2018 recording here on YouTube. I’d be surprised if it’s not her.

    • GLindsey

      Angelique Hogan Indeed she is!!! Blessed lady with an amazing gift 👍🏻

    • celes42017

      It’s her. No mistaking it. Gladys is a really sweet lady. Love her personality and her voice is amazing.

    • THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I’M HERE WATCHING THIS 🤣😂 She is DEFINITELY the bumblebee. No doubt. Lol!

  19. Hybrid Hildan

    Masked singer got me checking. Lol

  20. Truth Hurts

    The Masked Singer got me here. And hell yeah, its the Bee,.. Queen bee!
