Gladys Knight shared a heartfelt message about former first lady Michelle Obama as she praised her character and thanked her for her work on the documentary and memoir "Becoming"

Gladys Knight is a legend in her own right; at eight-years-old, she started singing with "The Pips." In 1989 her music reached new heights when she embarked on a solo career.

The seven-time Grammy Award-winner has performed with other icons, including Elton John, Stevie Wonder, and Dionne Warwick.

Throughout her success, she always praised other artists and trailblazers in the entertainment industry. Recently, she penned a heartfelt message to Michelle Obama. Knight gushed:

"Thank You, Michelle, for your love, guidance, and grace. Your beautiful book and now documentary, BECOMING, is moving us all."

Knight made Obama her "Woman Crush Wednesday" and said the work has done with her memoir "Becoming," has brought happiness and inspired new perspectives- something she said was "incredible."

Netflix is currently streaming the documentary, which looks at her childhood, and her life after leaving the White House. "I cried and laughed, just emotional. She is AMAZING, and I am so proud of her," said one person in response to Knight's tribute. 

Knights admiration for Obama had another fan sharing the same perspective; she admitted, "I agree, just watched her documentary the other day. Very real"

A book, a Grammy Award-winning spoken word album, and Netflix documentary wasn't enough for one fan, who commented that they wanted to see more of Obama on the big screen.
