has just launched her “A Mic and A Light” show at the Tropicana Las Vegas and is giving 50 tickets away each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening to school teachers as a way of showing appreciation to these unsung heroes.  

Through an arrangement with the Clark County School District, teachers (from selected schools each week) may obtain tickets from their principal to see Gladys Knight. “Education is so important and with all the budget cut news for teachers these days, I wanted to give them a night to enjoy themselves, know that we appreciate them and provide some good news,” said Ms. Knight. In addition to their tickets, teachers will also receive a voucher for 10 percent off their purchase in the Gladys Knight Boutique.

Gladys Knight’s children and grandchildren attended school in Clark County when they were young and she was actively involved in their schooling throughout their education. She is a supporter of bringing better education opportunities to Las Vegas and giving our teachers the tools they need to get the job done and respect for the amazing jobs they do each day with students.

Tickets are available starting at $65 plus tax and applicable fees. Show times are Tuesday through Thursday at 8 pm. as well as Friday and Saturday at 9 p.m. Tickets can be purchased through the Tropicana Box Office by calling (702) 739-2411 or by visiting
