Gladys Knight is set to guest star opposite Queen Latifah on new Fox series Star, created/executive produced by Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy.

Playing herself, the Empress of Soul is Alexandra’s (Ryan Destiny) music idol and the aunt of Danielle (guest star Jasmine Burke), who works in Carlotta’s (Queen Latifah) Salon. When Danielle arranges for Ms. Knight to introduce the girls at the Taylor Brothers Hair Show, the girls are honored beyond belief.

Star follows three talented, young singers – desperate for a new start and with ambitions of stardom – as they navigate the cut-throat music business. Benjamin Bratt, Jude Demorest, Brittany O’Grady and Amiyah Scott also star.

Knight recently released a new inspiration gospel album “Where my Heart Belongs”. Her recent TV credits include Empire, Apollo Live, Hollywood Homicide and Dancing with the Stars. She’ll next be seen in holiday movie Almost Christmas, which hits theaters November 11.
