Gladys Knight will be talking to dead people on TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland.”

The Grammy-winning soul legend will play a psychic named Miss Shonda on an episode titled “Scandalous,” TheWrap has learned.

Miss Shonda is an astrologer who, along with Elka (Betty White), is in a love triangle with the Mayor of Cleveland. When the mayor dies, Elka discovers their relationship and interrogates Miss Shonda on her whereabouts.

Knight is best known for her singing career as the front woman for Gladys Knight & The Pips in the 1960s and 1970s. But, she also has quite the acting resume.

She starred on the upcoming Lifetime movie “Seasons of Love” with Taraji P. Henson. They reunite for an upcoming episode of Fox’s “Empire,” as well. She has also played recurring roles on syndicated White House drama “The First Family,” The WB’s “Jamie Foxx Show” and Fox’s “Living Single.”

She is set to do a live streaming show with country music star Martina McBride in Nashville on Wednesday, Jan. 14 on Skyville.

“Hot in Cleveland,” which celebrated its 100th episode in August, will come to a close after the currently-airing sixth season.

CAA represents Knight.
