Gloria Gaynor

“I Will Survive” was recorded in 1978, as Gloria Gaynor’s tale of personal strength and was soon to become the greatest disco anthem of all time. (Gloria was in a back brace when this song was recorded!) In 1979, “I Will Survive” climbed to the top of Billboard’s Pop Charts and claimed the #1 position on two different occasions. Little did Gloria know, the song would grow into the banner for social survival which is still relevant after three decades of international airplay. This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the song which itself has survived in various forms and has been re-recorded over 200 times by various artists such as Gladys Knight, Chantay Moore, Diana Ross and Cake. ​See more​​​
