What an honor it must be for Kelly Rowland to have been hand picked by the legendary Gladys Knight to play her character in a forthcoming biopic. A Gladys Knight biopic has been talked about for a while now, and Gladys Knight finally is weighing in on the discussion. In an interview she posted on instagram, the “Midnight Train to Georgia” singer revealed that she’d like Kelly Rowland cast to play the starring role. “We don’t know her as an actress but there’s something about her and her spirit that reflects with me,” said Knight. She wrote the caption on her instagram post, “You guys remember when I asked you all who you’d like to see play the role of Gladys Knight in my biopic? Well… Here’s what I think :)”
We’re not sure if and when the biopic will come to fruition but we hope the directors take a good listen to Gladys Knight.
