LV Lawyer On Hit Gospel/Hip-hop/R&B Album

"God-fearing" and "lawyer" aren't two sentiments  typically associated together.

But Jay Young is both.

A Las Vegas attorney, Young is also a gospel singer who has sung with Gladys Knight for more than a decade. He recorded his own solo album in 2011.

Knight’s latest album, "Where My Heart Belongs," in which Young also sings, has the unusual honor of being on the top-40 charts in three music categories: gospel, R&B and hip-hop.

Young said he has been a singer since childhood. He auditioned for a part with Knight's troupe, sang a solo and began recording and touring with her in 2002.

Few of his fellow attorneys, he added, know about his singing career. At least, they didn't.

Segment is scheduled to air Friday, Nov. 7.
