First Listen: Gloria Gaynor and Yolanda Adams raise the roof

(July 8, 2019) Sure, she released perhaps the most iconic song of the disco era ("I Will Survive") and is best known as a true dance diva, but while those kudos are well deserved, they also tend to box in the greatness of legendary singer Gloria Gaynor. Now approaching her 70th birthday, Ms. Gloria looks and sounds better than ever, and is ready to show her longtime fans another side of her music in her newest album, Testimony.

A tribute to God and her faith, Testimony is a tour de force album of engaging gospel, performed by an artist who shows she's still got it, four decades after her most iconic hit. And the new album's music kicks off with the rousing"Talkin' Bout Jesus," where Gloria and Yolanda Adams talk about all the things in life that really matter: "mercy, grace and forgivness -- talkin' bout Jesus." The two singers rip through the song leaving listeners sweaty and raising their hands too.
