Born today in 1949, Gloria Gaynor is most famous for her anthem for the brokenhearted, "I Will Survive," released in 1978.
Gloria Gaynor started off in the group, the Satisfied Sisters, but eventually went on to a solo career in the 70s. The 90s had her back in the limelight doing cameos on shows like Ally McBeal and That 70s Show. Her hit, "I Will Survive," was covered by Cake on their album Fashion Nugget, one of my personal favorites.
Gloria Gaynor's groovy tunes have been featured on the following albums:
- Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert Soundtrack
- Disco Deluxe Disco Classics
- New in Town: Music From the Motion Picture
- Rhythm, Love and Soul: The Sexiest Songs of R&B
- Will & Grace: Let the Music Out!
