Hello everyone – hope you are having a great week with an exciting weekend coming up – I am on the road, I don’t care what they say about ‘that midnight train to Georgia,’ it would be a whole lot more restful than my plans – I start the month Aug. 1 in Oklahoma (sharing some love with these folks and hoping they are moving on since their tornados, God Bless them all). On the 2nd, I am in Austin, Texas – what an amazing city for music, always revitalizes my spirit and reminds me of my passion for what I get to do everyday – it is a gift and I am so fortunate. Sat., Aug. 3 finds me beginning a weekend in California – up north first in Saratoga and then on to one of my favorite cities more south in San Diego. Anyone up for tennis? Hope I can get in a game or two in between shows and travel – I do love my tennis. The O’Jays – my touring buddies – are with me in both California shows – they sure have a lot of energy!!
Look for me every week to keep you up on what’s new in my world –like my new album “Another Journey” on iTunes – it is finally ready for the world to hear – hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!!
I am back on the west coast and play at Harrah’s Laughlin tomorrow on the banks of the Colorado River. I can’t believe it is supposed to be up to 90° and it is almost November! It is just beautiful! I can’t say I blame the boaters and people enjoying the shore – I had so much fun on the Soul Train Cruise a few weeks ago!
I really appreciate all of the continued love and support for my new album- it is my joy to share my music with you!
Another busy but wonderful week traveling, doing media appearances and being able to support Tristan and Valerie in person on Monday on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars!” I am getting ready for my shows this Friday at Fantasy Springs Resort in beautiful Palm Springs and on Saturday at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills. What I am really looking forward to is embarking on the Soul Train Cruise next week with so many of my friends and amazing performers!
We had a great time in Atlanta last week for the opening of the Gladys Knight & Ron Winans Chicken and Waffles on Cascade Road! Thanks to everyone who came out to support us!
I was able to enjoy seeing some of the U.S. Open in NYC – especially Miss Serena! Congrats to her on her win!
Lots of great things happening this week but most importantly, Happy Birthday to my dear brother Bubba! He’s still Pippin’ it after all these years!
I’ve been in Atlanta gearing up for the grand opening of our newest Gladys Knight & Ron Winans Chicken & Waffles (http://gladysandron.net) on Cascade Road on Thursday! I am thrilled to work with my son Shanga on the latest location and hope that if you’re in the ATL you will stop by for some good down home southern food!
