Grammy Award-winning singer GLORIA GAYNOR took the music world by storm in the 1970s, striking platinum with her disco hit “I Will Survive”. “I Will Survive” was the only song to earn a Grammy for Best Disco Recording and was one of only twenty-five songs inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2012.
On September 19, 2005 Gaynor, along with her hit song “I Will Survive” were inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame during a ceremony that took place in New York City. “I Will Survive”, has been featured on the soundtrack of more than a half dozen major motion picture releases, and VH-1 honored Ms. Gaynor with the number one spot during their countdown of the Top 100 Dance Records of All Time.
Over the years, the disco legend has received thousands of personal messages from adoring fans whose lives have been transformed by this timeless song. Their remarkable stories reveal that “I Will Survive” has reached people from all walks of life who have faced life altering moments. From individuals triumphing over illness, to those suffering from the painful loss of a loved one, or those piecing their lives together after bearing witness to a national tragedy, “I Will Survive” has become an emotional anthem of hope and resilience.
“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.”
