Posted on 08/16/2012 6:00:35 PM PDT by beachn4fun

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale
of our military and our allied military
and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.

MUSIC NIGHT
for the Saturday music thread
Fabulous FRiday presents
Gladys Knight

Gladys Marie Knight
Born May 28, 1944
In Atlanta, Georgia.

She first achieved minor fame
by winning Ted Mack's Original Amateur Hour TV show contest
at the age of 7 in 1952.
The following year, she, her brother Merald, sister Brenda, and cousins William and Elenor Guest formed a musical group called The Pips.

Gladys Knight & the Pips joined the Motown roster in 1966,
and, although regarded as a second-string act,
scored several hit singles.

(They are performing aboard USS Ranger – 1981 in this picture)

Success

Knight and the Pips continued to have hits until the late 1970s,
when they were forced to record separately due to legal issues.

Knight's first solo LP recordings--Miss Gladys Knight (1978) on Buddah
and Gladys Knight (1979) on Columbia Records.

TRIVIA:

In their early Motown career
Gladys Knight and the Pips toured as the opening act
for Diana Ross and The Supremes.
Gladys Knight stated in her memoirs that Ross
kicked her off the tour because the audience's reception
to Knight's soulful performance overshadowed her.
Berry Gordy later told Gladys
that she was giving his act a hard time.

The name Pips came from a cousin, James "Pip" Woods.

Knight has been married four times and given birth to three children.

In 1987, Knight decided to pursue a solo career, and she and the Pips recorded their final LP together, All Our Love (1987)

In October 2009, Gladys started her farewell tour of the United Kingdom
which featured Tito Jackson as her supporting act
and special appearances by Dionne Warwick.

Remember, the Canteen is a family friendly place.

Continued prayers for the success and completion of your mission.
Prayers for your safe return home.

Good evening, Arrowhead...((HUGS))...home from work?

Hope you get some of the rain that HiJinx, in AZ, or E.G.C., in OK, has been getting. It is entirely too hot in Texas!

Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly.

The Bugler, his grim visage replete with an evil sneer, already mounts the parapet.

Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!

It is soooo good to be back. I finally figured it out when I started up my laptop and all was well.

I was afraid I had no internet connection at all. I really do hate computer issues. LOL!

Good morning everyone.
I'm back.
Much cooler at the Beachy homestead this morning.
And I saw a bunch of stars in the sky.
Seems forever since I've seen so many.
Although, it seems the dark has creeped up on me.
I wasn't ready for it to be dark already in the mornings.
