The song title was changed to “Midnight Train to Georgia” and was sung first by Cissy Houston. Gladys Knight and the pips sang it second and within eight weeks it became their very first #1 hit.
“I Heard It Through The Grapevine”
This song is one of Motown Records’ greatest hits yet. First sang by Smokey Robinson & the Miracles in 1966. The next year Gladys Knight and The Pips were allowed to sing the 3rd version of the song. It quickly became Gladys Knight & The Pips’ second #1 hit.
