Nailed It! Kelly Rowland Looks & Sounds Like Gladys Knight For New ‘Soul’ Series [Video]

Published: Friday 5th Oct 2018 by Rashad


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.

      It is! I hope this sets up the bio pic that Gladys has said she’s wanted Kelly to her for many years now! Love Kelly!

    She sounds good, but she doesn’t sound like Gladys Knight. Kelly Rowland sounds like, Kelly Rowland. Gladys Knight voice is husky and has little bit more soul than Kelly. This is misleading to me. You could have said video of Kelly filming for “Soul” series.

      Kelly is supposed to sound like Kelly. It ain’t karaoke. If she sounded like a carbon copy of Gladys you’d have something to say about that too.

        I think you missed the point. Bravo was saying that the title was misleading, when i pressed the video she sounded and looked like Kelly Rowland so the title could’ve been different.
        Its not like Bravo was being negative
