Soul star Gladys Knight is caught in a dilemma over 13 February's (05) Grammy Awards in Los Angeles - because she wants to perform with her gospel choir in Las Vegas on the same day.

The veteran songstress has been nominated for an award for her HEAVEN HELP US duet with the late Ray Charles on his posthumous album GENIUS LOVES COMPANY.

But she's also eager to get together with her 100-plus-member gospel choir SAINTS UNIFIED VOICES, which she put together and directs.

She says, "To be nominated with Ray Charles? I would love to go, but if there has to be a choice, well, the Lord is definitely the priority in my life now.

"I would rather do that than anything I've done in life. I'd cut out everything else I'm doing to do that."
