I will continue to do Christian music as long as God keeps giving me the songs and I feel it's His will for me to do so

Gloria Gaynor has become one of the best-known female disco artists from the ’70s due to the ongoing success of her monster 1979 hit, “I Will Survive.” Born Gloria Fowles on September 7, 1949, in Newark, NJ, the singer first sang as part of the obscure R&B outfit the Soul Satisfiers before being discovered by MGM Records. She became one of the first-ever dance artists to issue an album aimed primarily for club use, a method used to this day by DJs and certain dance artists.
