Full Bio

Grammy-winning I Will Survive was recorded in 1978 as Gloria Gaynor’s tale of personal strength and would become the greatest disco anthem of all time and the banner for social survival that is still relevant after three decades. Gaynor has performed in more than 80 countries, has appeared on Broadway and on national TV programs, and has earned numerous accolades for her distinguished career.

She is an author of two books and has also leant her talent to Broadway in, “Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” and TV, appearing on, “The Wayans Bros.,” “Ally McBeal,” and “That ‘70s Show.” Her second book, “We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song”, was released at the end of 2013.

The remarkable stories in this book reveal that the song, “I Will Survive,” has reached people from all walks of life and touched their lives in thousands of unique ways, she released a new Christian Contemporary CD, We Will Survive, which is the answer to “I Will Survive” – where Gloria answers the question on how she survived.

In between her busy touring and personal appearance schedule, she managed to pen an autobiography, appropriately entitled, “I Will Survive” (St. Martin’s Press) which offers the reader a revealing incite into the artist’s exciting yet somewhat turbulent life.

Additionally, Ms. Gaynor lends her support to numerous charities including the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation (North Jersey Affiliate,) the Hellenic Times Foundation, Miami Children’s Hospital, Trinitas Regional Medical Center, the Christian Broadcasting Network, Muhammad Ali’s Celebrity Fight Night for Parkinson’s research, Wynona’s House for children who are abused and neglected as well as several animal charities which include Danny & Ron’s Rescue, Bide-A-Wee and Hope for Paws.

Ms. Gaynor is a board member of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Essex, Hudson and Union, NJ, financially supports Save the Children and sponsors three children through the Christian Children’s Fund.

In May 2015, Gloria Gaynor will be receiving a Honorary Doctorate of Music from
Dowling College on Long Island, a honor that leaves Gaynor leaving a important mark on today’s youth. Says Gaynor, “’I Will Survive,’ should remind us to be proactive in this world. In trying times, people are always looking for answers and direction of what to do and where to go next.

So is it really so hard to believe that ‘I Will Survive’ has more relevance now than it did in 1979? Through this song we can relate to a woman who has faced the same struggles and summoned the strength to rise above and survive.

When you are knocked down you get back up, shrug of the hit and survive – don’t be afraid of the future!”
