Dear Miss Gaynor,
You, and your song really changed my life and helped me to “survive” a most difficult time for me and my children. I am so pleased to get this opportunity to tell you this and to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You see, I was a young mother in my early 30s on the verge of a very messy divorce, feeling lost, alone, depressed, defeated and helpless. One day a new song was introduced on the radio called “I Will Survive”.

I thought: “Wow! However does this woman (Gloria Gaynor) know what I’ve been going through?” Both you and “I Will Survive” helped me get through it all and begin to change my life. My children and I used to sing (loudly!) in the car whenever it came on the radio. Each time I heard it I felt more energized and more determined. It became my own personal anthem! You actually saved me a fortune in therapy sessions.

I began my business (a dance studio and performing arts center) 40 years ago this year. In fact, for our Grande Finale we are having many of our past students back to perform onstage at our 40th Anniversary Performance. Guess what our theme song will be? Yup! It will be my ever favorite song by my ever favorite performer, Miss Gloria Gaynor – “I Will Survive”. This year I chose it as our studio’s performance finale.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Miss Gaynor. You have made such a difference in so many lives, mine included.
