We’ve obtained the first images of Kelly playing Gladys in the new BET series, “American Soul” … which chronicles the rise of “Soul Train” creator and iconic host, Don Cornelius. If you didn’t know … Gladys was one of the first singers booked on the hit show.
As you can see from this scene filmed last week in Atlanta … the resemblance is uncanny — Kelly’s in 2 outfits for the scene she shot with Sinqua Walls, who’s playing Don. The video’s great too … Kelly’s on the piano with all eyes fixed on her as she delivers a soulful and breathtaking rendition of “Midnight Train to Georgia.”
It’s no wonder Gladys gave her seal of approval back in 2016 when she said on Instagram, “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.”
Best thing to ever happen to Gladys? It’s up there.
