The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation will feature 7x Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Gladys Knight at the fourth annual Elizabeth Taylor Ball to End AIDS on Sept. 21 at The Beverly Hills Hotel. The evening will be generously supported by presenting sponsor Gilead Sciences.
“Cookie and I are so excited to announce that on the night we are being honored by The Elizabeth Taylor Ball to End AIDS, the ‘Empress of Soul,’ Gladys Knight will perform,” Earvin “Magic” Johnson said. “We are thrilled to see our friend light up the stage. The great ones endure, and Gladys Knight is one of the greatest.”
Legendary soul singer Knight has enjoyed No. 1 hits in Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance. As the celebrated singer of the timeless song “Midnight Train to Georgia,” Knight has recorded more than 38 albums over the years: “Good Woman” (1991); “Just for You” (1994); the inspirational “Many Different Roads” (1999); and “At Last” (2001).
A humanitarian and philanthropist, Knight is devoted to various worthy causes, including the American Diabetes Association – for which she is a national spokesperson, the American Cancer Society, the Minority AIDS Project, amFAR and Crisis Interventio, and The Boys and Girls Club. She has been honored by numerous organizations as well, including the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Congress of Racial Equality, B’Nai Brith and is a recipient of BET’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
