Gladys Knight & the Pips were an R&B/soul musical act from Georgia. The founding members were Gladys Knight, brother Merald “Bubba” Knight, sister Brenda Knight and cousins William and Eleanor Guest. After a couple years Brenda Knight and Eleanor Guest were eventually replaced by another cousin, Edward Patten and a non-relative, Langston George in 1959. The group had their first hit single, “Every Beat of My Heart”. They changed their name to Gladys Knight & the Pips in 1961. Through the years Gladys Knight had many hits with and without the Pips but the popularity of the group never faded nor did the quality of their music.
We are proud to bring you this collection of Gladys Knight & The Pips.
