Gloria Gaynor's Early Life

On September 7, 1943, Gloria Fowles, the future Gloria Gaynor, was born in Newark, New Jersey, to Queenie and the musician and vocalist Daniel. She has a sister and five brothers. Growing up, Gaynor adored listening to the radio and buying music by performers like Sarah Vaughan and Nat King Cole.

Gaynor's successful debut studio album, “Never Can Say Goodbye,” was released on that label in the beginning of 1975. It peaked at number 25 on the Billboard 200 and gave birth to the title song, “Honey Bee,” and “Reach Out, I'll Be There,” three big singles. “Experience Gloria Gaynor,” her second album, was released shortly after.

She first published “I've Got You” in 1976, followed by “Glorious” and “Gloria Gaynor's Park Avenue Sound.” Gaynor's album “Love Tracks,” which peaked at number four on the Billboard 200, gave her her biggest hit to date in 1978. It also gave rise to “I Will Survive,” her most commercially successful hit, which topped the charts in the US, UK, and Ireland.

Gaynor released the album “I Have a Right” after the huge success of “I Will Survive,” which gave birth to her subsequent big song, “Let Me Know (I Have a Right).” The albums “Stories” and “I Kina Like Me” came next, both of which received little attention in the US because of the disco backlash in the early 1980s.

With her cover of “I Am What I Am” from “La Cage Aux Folles,” which was featured on her album “I Am Gloria Gaynor,” Gaynor found fame once more in 1984. The song eventually turned into a gay anthem, turning Gaynor into a gay hero.
