Disco Queen Gloria Gaynor has shared her voice with the world for several years. Now, she’s sharing her ‘voice’ in another form. Gaynor has penned a new book titled, “We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song.” The songstress will discussing her book on July 7 at the 92nd Street Y in NY.
Gloria Gaynor became a household name after recording and releasing her mega-hit song, “I Will Survive” in 1979. The song hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 charts. In 1980, the “I Will Survive” received the only Grammy Award ever for Best Disco Recording. The 64-year-old singer has since gone on to record over 15 studio albums.
It’s been over 30-years since that song hit the airwaves and this July, Gaynor will sit down with Billboard Magazine Award winner Valerie Smaldone to take a look back and talk about her struggles and achievements over the years. These ups and downs have been documented in Gaynor’s new book, “We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song.” which is available now for purchase.
Gaynor will be chatting it up with Smaldone at the 92nd Street Y in the Buttenweiser Hall at 8:15 p.m. on July 7. Tickets for this event start at $29 and can be purchased now at www.92y.org.
Fans who cannot attend the event, can leave their questions for Gaynor on the 92nd Street Y website. Some of these questions may even be used on stage during the Q&A. Video clips from the interview will be posted on 92Y On Demand after the event .
