“I Will Survive – a timeless anthem empowering those reaching for positive change in their lives, a sing-along sound track supporting those in a period of change, often from a dark place to somewhere brighter” – Tina Turner

The legendary singer has added another milestone to her career.  Gloria Gaynor will release her first Gospel album exclusively on AMAZON.COM on November 26 appropriately titled WE WILL SURVIVE.   “Recording a Gospel album was something I’ve wanted to do for years, but my manager and husband kept putting me off,” Gaynor shares.  “Now that I’m in control of my own career, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity and combine the four things I believe I was created to do – sing, write, teach, and share my faith.”
