The group opened for many R&B legends in the 1950s before heading to Motown.

She is currently on Rolling Stone’s list of the Greatest Singers of All Time. In Midnight Train to Georgia Hayley Ria Christian portrays her, capturing the magic that Knight brings to the stage. The show features hit songs including Baby Don’t Change Your Mind, Help Me Make it Through the Night, Try to Remember/The Way We Were, Part Time Love, Licence to Kill and Knight’s signature tune, Midnight Train to Georgia.
