A super congrats goes out to Georgia legend Gladys Knight! Today, she was honored with an Atlanta highway dedication presented by Sen. Donzella James (D-Atlanta). Gladys Knight Highway will run from Peachtree Street to 14th Street along State Route 9 in Fulton County.
She looks so happy!
I’ve also had the pleasure of photographing this amazing treasure! I snapped the following pics a couple of years ago during her Atlanta “Chicken & Waffle” grand opening. 🙂
Ms. Knight is a recording artist, songwriter, businesswoman, humanitarian and author. Her group, Gladys Knight & The Pips are known for hits such as “I Heard It through the Grapevine” and “Midnight Train to Georgia.” She has been awarded numerous awards throughout her career, including 7 Grammy Awards, music’s highest honor.
I wasn’t able to attend but here’s a few Instagram pics of Gladys in Atlanta!
