For the the music lovers not of this era I'm know you know who she was. I know you've heard the song and I am very much sure that you've sung her song always in karaoke or videoke bars. So to make it more interesting for you here's a press release about Gloria Gaynor and her visit in the Philippines.
Gloria Gaynor, American singer and the Queen of disco and soul, is delighted to visit her Filipino fans as ATG Entertainment Productions presents “GLORIA GAYNOR: I Will Survive” on April 5, 2013 at the NBC Tent, Global City Taguig and on April 6, 2013 at the AUF Sports and Cultural, McArthur Highway, Angeles City.
Popularly known as an icon of the disco era, Gaynor will surely be treating you with some of her most recognized international successes. Known for her Broadway-style overture of her hits including her disco hit “I Will Survive” in 1979, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “I Am What I Am” will surely complete a grand production befitting for a Queen of Disco.
Gaynor released her several albums under the titles "I Will Survive" (Hot 100 number 1, 1979), "Never Can Say Goodbye" (Hot 100 number 9, 1974), "Let Me Know (I Have a Right)" (Hot 100 number 42, 1980) and "I Am What I Am" (R&B number 82, 1983). Gaynor has become one of the best-known female disco artists from the '70s due to the ongoing success of her monster 1979 hit and Grammy winning (and subsequent "woman's anthem"), "I Will Survive.”
The aforementioned hit song remains popular in dance clubs and has appeared on countless movie soundtracks and dance/disco compilations. According to Wikipedia, after almost 30 years of its release, Gaynor continues to ride the success of "I Will Survive", touring the world over and performing her signature song on dozens of TV shows. Said Gaynor of her biggest hit in a 2012 interview "It feels great to have such a song like that because I get kids five and six years old telling me they like the song, and then people seventy-five and eighty. It's quite an honor."
In signature Gaynor fashion, expect a night with variety of sounds-- encompassing upbeat dance-pop and classic-sounding soul-- bringing you to the dancefloor and letting you swing to iconic beats. “GLORIA GAYNOR: I Will Survive” is on April 5, 2013 at the NBC Tent, Global City Taguig and April 6, 2013 at the AUF Sports and Cultural, McArthur Highway, Angeles City presented by ATG Entertainment Productions.
