Four years ago Empress of Soul Gladys Knight took to press to announce she was interested in casting Destiny’s Child alum Kelly Rowland as the lead singer in her yet-developed biopic (click here to read).
Now, it appears the ‘Midnight Train to Georgia’ legend is getting her wish. Details inside:
[TMZ] obtained the first images of Kelly playing Gladys in the new BET series, “American Soul” [seen above]… which chronicles the rise of “Soul Train” creator and iconic host, Don Cornelius.
We couldn’t be more excited for the finished product and hope it’s just the first step toward a full on film of Miss Gladys’ life.
