Singer Kelly Price has also joined the cast a series regular and “Power” star Sinqua Walls will play a young Cornelius in the series.
Knight was one of the first performers booked during “Soul Train’s” early days.
Four-time Grammy winner Rowland will also record an original version of Knight’s signature hit with the Pips, “Midnight Train to Georgia” for the role.
Price joins the cast as a series regular, playing Brianne Clarke. Clarke’s character is described as the “wise yet cautious” head of the Clarke family whose children Simone and Kendall are rising stars in Los Angeles.
Gladys is no doubt pleased with this casting news. Two years ago, she made an Instagram post revealing her love for Kelly and approval of a biopic starring the Destiny’s Child singer.
“It’s no secret that I love my @kellyrowland So many people have said that Kelly would be the perfect person to star in my biopic. What do you think, #Knights?!,” Gladys wrote.
