Gladys Knight shares a romantic dance with her husband William McDowell amid the Coronavirus pandemic, keeping their spirits high during uncertain times.

Now, the two share a romantic dance while at a party, acknowledging that regardless of what they do, they "add style" to it. Dressed in complementing blue and maroon outfits, the couple dances the night away as other people look with glee. 

The "Empress of Soul" might be 75-years-old, but she continues to keep herself busy and works hard up to this day. Just recently, she starred on "The Masked Singer." While the winner ended up being T-Pain as The Monster, Gladys went home in third place as The Bee.

While Gladys has had quite the stellar career, she's actually been married four times. Knight has three children from two of her marriages. Her first marriage was to James Newman from 1960 to 1973, Barry Hankerson from 1974 to 1979, Les Brown from 1995 to 1995, and now, to William McDowell since 2001. 

Newman and Knight share two kids together, Kenya and James III. She also has a son named Shanga from her marriage to Barry Hankerson. Her son James passed away in 1999 at age 36, and was survived by his wife and their five children. 


While Gladys and William were dancing the night away, New Yorkers in self-quarantine for the Coronavirus have been finding their own ways to keep busy. Mimicking those in self-quarantine in Italy, a community in New York sang "Hey Jude" by The Beatles with their neighbors, people whom they haven't seen prior to the pandemic.
