The long- reigning "Empress of Soul" gained her royal moniker after fifty years of performing and producing albums. Most famous for her hit "Midnight Train To Georgia" and "If I Was Your Woman" with backing group The Pips, Knight has exemplified a talent that goes beyond vocal range, but acting and dancing as well; most recently in the Tyler Perry film I Can Do Bad All By Myself and on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars." While most performers her age are retiring or slowing down, Knight still performs regularly in Las Vegas where she was the first African American performer to have a venue named after her. Tonight the legend will be performing at Orange County's own Segerstrom Hall.
