In 1951, when she was just 7 years old, she took her initial step to fame after she won Ted Mack"s Original Amateur Hour TV Show Contest.
Gladys Knight started earning even more fame when she started performing in musical group called The Pips, along with her other siblings, Merald and Brenda and two of her cousins Elenor and William. Years later, group"s popularity started to rise and The Pips was seen touring.

The group narrowed down to be a quartet after the departure of Langston George in 1962, after which the group renamed itself to Gladys Knight and The Pips.
The same year she found out that she was pregnant again and later gave birth to a son Jimmy III, also in 1962 group was able to score another blockbuster hit "Letter Full of Tears".
