Gladys Knight Pays Tribute To Late Cousin


Gladys Knight

The singer, who was an original member of Gladys Knight & The Pips, passed away in Detroit, Michigan aged 74 after suffering congestive heart failure.

He grew up with Gladys and performed in her band, featuring on hits including Midnight Train to Georgia, and the music legend has now mourned the loss in a statement posted on her Instagram.com page.

"My mother, Elizabeth Knight, always prayed for his (God's) guidance in raising up his children to one day be his worthy servants. She heard us singing in the back yard... and founded a group of family kids who became Gladys Knight & the Pips!" she writes. "We have lost many along the way; Edward Patton, Eleanor Guest, and now William Guest. We tried using our gifts of music in a way that would be pleasing to God. Please, take care of their journeys home and I say thank you Lord for a long and wonderful ride."
