The Destiny’s Child star won critical-acclaim for her performance as Gladys and, of course, those perfect vocals. Sharing her love of the role, Kelly said: ‘Playing Gladys is a great honour because she’s been around for so long and still has so much grace, so much class and so much love for music. She still sings as if she just started yesterday.

Gladys, 74, has made it clear that she approves of Kelly portraying her on-screen, as she once tweeted in 2016: ‘It’s no secret that I love my @kellyrowland. ‘So many people have said that Kelly would be the perfect person to star in my biopic.’

Rowland will be showing off her singing skills as she prepares to record an original version of Knight’s “Midnight Train to Georgia.”

Many fans have drawn a comparison between Rowland and Knight’s looks. Back in 2016, Knight herself asked her fan on Instagram if they would like the Destiny’s Child singer to play her in a biopic. Her caption said, “It’s no secret that I love my @kellyrowland So many people have said that Kelly would be the perfect person to star in my biopic. What do you think, #Knights?! 😍❤️ #stunning #kellyrowland.”
