For millions of music lovers around the world Gloria Gaynor's name is synonymous with pop music. An undisputed disco sensation, she recorded a cover version of a Righteous Brothers song called "Substitute". The hastily selected B-side chosen for the single was a little tune you may have heard of called "I Will Survive". That song went on to inspire not only Gloria, but millions of people worldwide.
Gloria joined us to talk about a few of those stories which she's compiled into the new book, We Will Survive. It's both heart-wrenching and uplifting - a book that illustrates the unifying and healing powers of music. Gloria has appeared on countless television and radio shows, received numerous national and international music and humanitarian awards, and continues to perform around the world for legions of fans. Her most requested song is, of course, "I Will Survive."
