Gladys Knight posted a lovely message on her Instagram this week, pairing it with a photo of her sporting a white polo shirt and a black blazer. This comes after she clarified her message during Aretha Franklin's funeral, saying she was a breast cancer survivor.


Gladys has been making the most out of her life, and she wants her fans to do the same. After recently revealing that she was a cancer survivor, she wants everyone to know that they are blessed with the gift of life.

"If God woke you up this morning, that means He’s not done with you yet. You are #blessed!"


When Knight attended her friend's funeral at the Greater Grace Temple in Detroit last Thursday, people thought that she and Aretha had the same type of cancer, which was pancreatic cancer. However, her publicist made sure to clarify what she meant by having the same disease as Aretha, which was cancer.

In a statement that her representative gave to Rolling Stone, he said that she does not have cancer and is doing fine.

“I’d like to clarify that Aretha and I discussed both of us having cancer, mine was stage 1 breast cancer and hers was pancreatic. Due to early detection, I am cancer-free and grateful for that. It is unfortunate that on a day we should be celebrating Aretha’s life and massive contribution to our world, a reporter who did not relay accurate information has missed the message. I send my love to the entire Franklin family and my gratitude to them for sharing such an extraordinary person with us.”


Now that she has done her job clearing up the issue, Gladys has moved on with her life, even recently attending the US Open to support her good friend Serena Williams. A week after she clarified some misinformation about her health, she shared a photo with the tennis legend to congratulate her for all her tennis successes.

It's always great to see women from different fields supporting each other, and it's definitely a step towards the right direction of having women of different backgrounds cheering each other on.
