Gladys Knight Stars At McCallum In Palm Desert

Last night we were given a real musical treat by Gladys Knight as she performed at The McCallum Theatre in Palm Desert California to a sold-out audience. She was backed by a seven piece band and three "Pip-like" singers. Every new singer should be required to see Ms. Knight in action.  There is no doubt that she could teach a class in what it means and takes to have "Stage Presence".  From the moment she walked on stage, she connected with the audience and never let the attachment go from the beginning to the end of her performance. What a pro; what a voice; what a sense of rhythm!! She also brought her brother, the last living Pip, on stage to recreate his thing for the audience. It's a warm feeling to see big stars never forget their roots. Gladys Knight started her career at the age of 7 on the popular "Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour" and luckily for us has kept singing through the last 40 years.
