Knight took to the stage with Grammy-nominated country singer Mickey Guyton to perform “Friendship Train.” The song was recorded by Knight decades ago when she was singing in the group Gladys Knight & The Pips. It’s a classic!

Guyton’s performance with Knight came immediately after she (Guyton) sang with BRELAND. After BRELAND left the stage, Guyton came over to Knight’s side and grabbed her hand as they began singing “Friendship Train.” It was the perfect display of friendship.

And Guyton and Knight’s performance was the perfect collaboration. Check it out in the video below. The video also contains Guyton’s performance with BRELAND!
