Dionne Warwick responds after US Open Television announcers mistook her for Gladys Knight

The US Open has been attracting many celebrities who watch Serena Williams compete, in what will be her last tennis tournament. However, there has been plenty of action in the stands as well as on the tennis court.

On Wednesday night, legendary singer Dionne Warwick was seen in the crowd during Serena’s match. However, the TV announcers who narrated during her match mistook her for another legendary singer… Gladys Knight.

According to TMZthe announcers responsible for the mix-up were Mary Carillo and Chanda Rubin.

On Thursday, Dionne had some fun with her response to the situation, as she used song titles from Gladys’ classic hit “Mighty Train to Georgia”, and his classic hits “walking for”, as well as that of Aretha Franklin “I say a little prayer.”

Dionne tweeted: “Hi I’m Gladys Knight…and instead of taking that midnight train to Georgia I won’t be walking past but I’ll have a little prayer for you.”

In a statement to TMZ, Gladys Knight’s representatives released a statement saying:

“Dionne and I have been sisters for a long time and I hope she feels as honored to be mistaken for me as I would be for her. I’m sure it was an honest mistake. It was a blessing to be in the house to see Serena’s greatness.”

This is not the first time an identity error has occurred since the US Open began.

What previously reported, earlier this week, some fans thought actress Laverne Cox was Beyoncé as she cheered on Serena Williams while in the audience.
