pages 15 [bottom] – 16—“SINGING UGLY”
One of the things she [Momma] built into my brain was to never “flake out” on a note. She told me that if a note is high but within your natural range you have to go for it instead of chickening out and going to the falsetto. I don’t have great range. My top note is about a B-flat, so to hit the night notes that are considered out of my range, I have to sing ugly. You can’t be worried about looking pretty when you are pushing your voice to hit those high not

I found this book on sale for el-cheapo, so I thought I'd check it out. I've always liked Gladys Knight, and it was very interesting to learn about her upbringing, her rise to fame in the music world, and her many challenges.

This book was a neat look into Gladys Knight's life. It ends before she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so that information isn't in there (I was a little disappointed because I thought it would be in there) but it was fun to hear about her life and inspiring to see her overcome all that she did.

Gladys Knight truly has SOUL...and I kon't just mean she can sing a great r&b song. She definitely has soul as a singer, but more than that she has an incredible soul that has given her the inner strength to not just to survive, not just to endure, but (as Faulkner would say): to PREVAIL!

I enjoyed it a lot. It did seem a little uneven though. It started with immense detail on her youth and early career but seemed almost to gloss over her career once she and The Pips hit it big.
Still, her story was entertaining and her humor was much appreciated.

This isn't a page turner, but it's very interesting. She's really not had a very easy life, but seems to have a great attitude about life and what she's learned.
