FESTIVAL DE ROCK - GLADYS KNIGHT AND THE PIPS

Gladys, seu irmão Merald Knight e os primos Edward Patten e William Guest se juntaram em 1953 quando o rock ainda não tinha este nome. Dona de um balanço que era reservado aos negros, foi um dos baluartes da Motown na difícil época da Invasão Britânica. Ganhou um Grammy em 1985 pela interpretação de That’s What Friends Are For, ao lado de Dionne Warwick, Elton John e Steve Wonder. Os sucessos do grupo começaram com Every Beat Of My Heart, seguindo-se Letter Full Of Tears, Givin’ Up, Everybody Needs Love e a música postada aqui, I Heard It Through The Grapevine. Mas o maior sucesso de Gladys foi convencer o poderoso Barry Gordy a contratar os Jackson 5.

 
Gladys, brother Merald Knight and cousins Edward Patten and William Guest joined in 1953 when rock had not this name. Owner of a beat only reserved to blacks, this group was one of the Motown weapons in the hard years of the British Invasion. She won a Grammy in 1985 for That’s What Friends Are For, with Dionne Warwick, Elton John and Steve Wonder. The early hits of the band started with Every Beat Of My Heart, then Letter Full Of Tears, Givin’ Up, Everybody Needs Love and the song posted here, I Heard It Through The Grapevine. But Gladys’ biggest hit was to convince powerful Barry Gordy to offer Jackson 5 a contract.
