Blast From the Past: Gladys Knight

Seven-time Grammy Award-winner Gladys Knight wowed a sold-out audience when she performed at The Paramount last fall. Perhaps not quite as popular as Ms. Knight – but most certainly a hit – was our specialty drink, aptly named “Midnight Train To Georgia,” which sold out that night. Two Paramount volunteers, Delores Herring and Elaine Chapman, reflected on Ms. Knight’s unforgettable performance.

“Seeing Gladys Knight was a dream come true for me!” Delores said. “She looked terrific and her voice was as strong and as beautiful as ever. I will always remember this wonderful evening!”

“Truly, Gladys Knight was the best, given the full audience and their responses!” Elaine said. “She is now 75 years old, but has the same energy, attractive style and voice as ever. The best piece was ‘Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me’ – so many memories for me and so many people! She was a most special performer.”

We are diligently working to reschedule many of our events that have been interrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These events contribute significantly toward our yearly operating budget, and we know that we will suffer a devastating loss of revenue as a local nonprofit theater. Please consider making a donation to The Paramount.
