The news journal Ottowa Citizen recently published a feature article on the singer Gladys Knight, entitled “Sharing The Gospel”. The personal interview discusses her trials and achievements, her new autobiography , her 2006 Jazz recording, the death of her son, and her conversion in 1997 to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is well worth reading!
I have so much love and respect for this amazing woman. As a vocal artist, no one pours more emotion and meaning into a song. As a survivor, she exemplifies the strength we each have within us to rise above. As a mother who has loved and lost deeply, she knows first hand the hope we have through Christ. As a woman of faith, she carries a sweet and calm assurance that our Heavenly Father loves each of His children, and guides our path. She is a strong soul spreading goodness wherever she goes, and shares the gospel of peace to a troubled world through her music. Thank you, dear sister Gladys! You are an inspiration!
