The Grammys came and went late last month, but a true winner who wasn’t even nominated this year was Gladys Knight. The singer took part in pre-award’s ceremony festivities, including appearing and performing at the annual Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala. Her appearance on the red carpet turned heads, with the 73-year-old singer looking pretty spectacular. She always does, but this time around, her face was absolutely glowing and everyone noticed:

Per the usual, there were questions about whether or not the legendary singer may have had some work done, and weeks after that Grammy appearance, Knight is finally sharing her secret. She says she’s been eating a lot cleaner these days and being more active, enjoying tennis workouts. And having some good genes also helps a lot.

“I feel like I won a gold medal 🎖with all the compliments. You guys keep me young!” Knight said on Instagram. “Thankful for these God given genes and clean living. My activity of choice has been tennis, working my way up to be as good as @serenawilliams and @venuswilliams.”

She also pointed out that her flawless pre-Grammy look was also helped by her makeup artist and her husband, who serves as her unofficial stylist:

I feel like I won a gold medal 🎖with all the compliments. You guys keep me young! Thankful for these God given genes and clean living. My activity of choice has been tennis, working my way up to be as good as @serenawilliams and @venuswilliams . Of course I can't do this alone, I have the best glam squad and team that keeps me looking fresh and on point. My husband William @fortuneandmind has an eye for fashion and helps me with the majority of my looks. I think he missed his calling as a stylist. I also have to give credit to my amazingly talented hairstylist Tre @treworldhairsalon in Las Vegas for my Bedhead Pixie Cut. My makeup artist Miss Kayla @tress2impresskp had me GLOWING at the Clive Davis Grammy Party with @maccosmetics Skinfinish highlighter. You know that friend that stays real with you, I'm lucky to have one that travels me. Thank you Ms. Blondie! Watch out 2018 so much more to come! #2018 #cleanliving #trezyhair #specificbeauty #feelinggood
