With reality TV singing contests cropping up hear and there, Apollo Live is launching with a real veteran singer as one of their singing judges on Apollo Live.
Now they say the wisest of them all is the one with the greatest depth and range of experience and I guess Gladys Knight is a difficult one to beat in that department with such a long and successful career.
