Gloria Gaynor Re-Records "I Will Survive" With Miami Children’s Hospital Cancer Center Patients
Miami, FL — Grammy Award-winning singer, Gloria Gaynor and Ambassador David M. Walters, International Pediatric Hall of Fame 2012 Inductee, rewrote the words of her iconic song I Will Survive in support of the Bald, Brave, Beautiful® project at Miami Children's Hospital. The goal of this project is to raise funds to help find a cure and provide hope to children with cancer.
What's more, it was a top secret that Ms. Gaynor visited Miami Children's Hospital last month to record the song and a music video to help spread the word that "kids and chemo should not go together." The surprise music video was then debuted this Saturday night, October 27 at the 2012 Diamond Ball where everyone could see it for the first time. Most all in the video is either a patient, family members of the patients or colleagues of the hospital.
"I believe this song was a gift to me many years ago to help share the message of hope, it has become an anthem for many survivors of all walks of life, but I am especially honored to have this song be a part in the efforts to raise money for these children." says Gaynor.
Ms. Gaynor would love to encourage everyone to share this video with your network of friends to help spread the word and raise funds for the Miami Children's Hospital's Cancer Center.
