Music legend and much loved Dancing With The Stars contestant, Gladys Knight, is performing at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend. Not only that, and watch out, Dancing With The Stars pros Tristan MacManus, Sasha Farber, Henry Byalikov, and Artem Chigvintsev are performing with her too. Below is some coverage from George Pennacchio and ABC7. Great interview and isn’t fun to see them all again?
ETA: The Examiner has an article posted on the show. Below is take about she and the pros they danced. Be sure to see the link for more. LOL to “it was on my bucket list”.
Gladys Knight proved why she is at legendary status in her 75 minute set. The seven-time GRAMMY Award winner has earned number one hits in Pop, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has also had a career in film, television. Knight showed why she is still in the business after all of these decades and her voice still incredible.
Knight kicked off her set opening the show sitting at the piano and performing “Hard To Say I’m Sorry”. She told the crowd “this is something you never seen me do”. She stated that she wanted to take piano lessons as a child but with there being four kids, her mom could not afford it so her sister Brenda got the piano lessons and she got to sing. She said it was on her “bucket list’ as she played the piano during the show. She then went on to perform “You Should Be Dancing” by The Bee Gees. Back up dancers come on stage to dance and it is Sasha Farber, Henry Byalikov and Artem Chigvintsev from “Dancing With The Stars”. Then comes Tristan MacManus who was Knight’s dancing partner when she competed on the hit television show to lead her into a dance routine. She joked afterwards saying “it was on my bucket list”.
Mary Murphy was at the show last night. She posted some fun shots. @JDSwartz posted some instagrams too…
