Fun Facts, Gloria Gaynor!

Gloria Gaynor was born on September 7, 1949. The singer who brought to us the disco era hits; “I Will Survive”, “Never Can Say Goodbye“, “Let Me Know (I Have a Right)” and “I Am What I Am“.

Her first real success came in 1975 with the release of her album Never Can Say Goodbye, which established her as a disco artist. The first side of this album consisted of three disco songs (“Honey Bee”, “Never Can Say Goodbye” and “Reach Out, I’ll Be There“), with no breaks in between the songs. This 19-minute dance marathon proved to be enormously popular, especially at dance clubs. All three songs were released as singles via radio edits, and all of them became hits. The album was instrumental in introducing disco music to the public, “Never Can Say Goodbye” becoming the first song to top Billboard magazine’s dance chart. Capitalizing on the success of her first album, she quickly released her second album, Experience Gloria Gaynor, later that same year. While this album was also successful, it was not quite as popular as her previous album in the mainstream.
