Gloria Gaynor, best known for her power anthem “I Will Survive,” is recording a new CD in Nashville produced by Capitol CMG writer Chris Stevens. The pop star is also collaborating with producer/engineer F. Reid Shippen and American Idol alum Melinda Doolittle on the new project, which will feature a collection of Christian songs with positive energy and an uplifting spirit.
Gaynor penned a book, We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song, in 2013 about the ways “I Will Survive,” has touched people from all walks of life. On top of her concert schedule, she also appears at motivational speaking engagements around the country, recently appearing at SXSW in Texas, the CCU Women in Philanthropy & Leadership Conference in South Carolina, and GRAMMY’s on the Hill in Washington, DC.
“’I Will Survive,’ should remind us to be proactive in this world,” explains Gaynor about the enduring popularity of the song. “In trying times, people are always looking for answers and direction of what to do and where to go next. So is it really so hard to believe that ‘I Will Survive’ has more relevance now than it did in 1979? Through this song we can relate to a person who has faced the same struggles and summoned the strength to rise above and survive. When you are knocked down you get back up, shrug off the hit and survive—don’t be afraid of the future!”
