Gloria Gaynor

Gloria Gaynor is an American singer, best known for the disco era hits “I Will Survive” (1978), “Let Me Know (I Have a Right)” (1979), “I Am What I Am” (1983), and her version of “Never Can Say Goodbye” (1974). In December 2019 “I Will Survive” trended on TikTok and Gaynor performed the dance at the LifeMinute TV studios in Times Square, NY. In January 2020, she won her second Grammy Award in her career, 40 years after her first, for her roots gospel album Testimony. In 2021, Gaynor returned to disco music when she recorded “Can’t Stop Writing Songs About You” with Australian singer Kylie Minogue for the reissue of Minogue’s fifteenth studio album Disco entitled Disco: Guest List Edition. The collaboration occurred following Gaynor praising Minogue for keeping Disco alive with her album of the same name. In April 2021, Gaynor recorded “Brand New” with the veteran Contemporary Christian band MercyMe. In 2022, Gaynor competed in season eight of The Masked Singer as “Mermaid” who rode on a giant clam-like vehicle that the Men in Black had to push around. After being eliminated on “Andrew Lloyd Webber Night” alongside Mario Cantone as “Maize”, Gaynor did her performance of “I Will Survive”.
