When Gladys Knight and The Pips came out with their 1973 hit single “Midnight Train to Georgia,” they had no idea they were placing themselves into the legendary status of unforgettable musicians. The song won the Grammy Award for Best R&B performance and will forever be known as Knight’s most influential and important piece.
The song, written in an almost country music style of the ’70s, follows the story of a failed musician who plans on going back home to his native Georgia and how his love will come along with him on the ride. The idea that love can conquer all is a theme that remains just as prevalent today as it did in the turbulent era in which this beautiful song was initially performed.
While the group of talented a cappella musicians in this amazing video are all young, that doesn’t mean that they don’t have the spirit inside of them. All of these singers work so perfectly together, that it is no wonder that they’ve garnered over 50,000 views on YouTube!
These talented students sing together is a real treat to watch, and their incredible take on such a beautiful song is definitely worth listening to!
