Gladys Knight and The Pips - Voice Your Choice

Gladys Knight and The Pips have a very interesting story. They are a family group for starters with Gladys, her brother Merald "Bubba" Knight, sister Brenda and cousins William and Eleanor Guest. They were called the "Pips" after their manager, cousin James "Pip" Woods.

Brenda and Eleanor were replaced by cousins Edward Patten and Langston George. Langston left the group in 1962 and the group has remained with the same quartet ever since.

They had many appearances on the Billboard charts between 1961 and 1996. In fact, they hit the chats a total of 42 times, including 9 Top Ten hits and 5 Gold Records.

Treasure Island Oldies presents Gladys Knight and The Pips on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote at the Voice Your Choice page for either If I Were your Woman or Neither One Of Us (Wants To Be The First To Say Goodbye). I'll play the winning song on next week's show.
