Soul-singing superstar Gladys Knight has sold her Las Vegas-area home. It’s not clear if the Grammy-winning gospel and massively successful hit-making singer, and her husband, William McDowell, are planning to leave the area to be near a recently announced charitable project in North Carolina.

The sales price for the Mediterranean-style home, sitting off a privately gated street on half an acre, was $720,000. The home includes a professional recording studio.

Knight, 73, a pillar of the Las Vegas entertainment industry for decades, found success in the late 1960s recording for Motown Records as Gladys Knight & the Pips, with songs such as “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” and “Take Me in Your Arms and Love Me.”

Knight bought the home more than 20 years ago for $695,000, records show.

The North Carolina project is located in the historic mill town of Canton on the Pigeon River where Knight and McDowell are hoping to build a new community center. They are co-founders of the RHS Community Foundation through which they seek to build and fund the center. Living at his grandfather’s home in the area, McDowell attended the second and third grade in this building, which was then a segregated school.

The town was named for Canton, Ohio, the source of the steel for the bridge over the Pigeon River.

The couple also owns a home in Fairview, near Nashville, local media report.
