Live Performance of the Week: Gladys Knight wows them on Letterman

By any measure, Gladys Knight is one of the greatest Soul singers of all time.  Her expressive, powerful voice became the model for two generations of singers from Jennifer Holliday to Alicia Keys, and her work with the Pips stands tall among the best Soul music of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

By any measure, Gladys Knight is one of the greatest Soul singers of all time.  Her expressive, powerful voice became the model for two generations of singers from Jennifer Holliday to Alicia Keys, and her work with the Pips stands tall among the best Soul music of the 60s, 70s and 80s.

And Gladys is still both a relevant and powerful powerful performer in 2013, as she showed last week on Late Night with David Letterman when she performed with Lenny Kravitz the song "You and I Ain't Nothin' No More," from the movie The Butler. It is chilling and beautiful. And it is our SoulTracks Live Performance of the Week. Check it out below and get ready to cheer for Miss Gladys again.
