Gloria’s 2nd book, “We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song”, was a 2015 GRAMMY nominee for Best Spoken Word Album. The book’s remarkable stories reveal individuals triumphing over illness; suffering from the painful loss of a loved; to others piecing their lives together after national tragedies. “I Will Survive,” has become an emotional anthem for them and for millions of Gloria’s adoring fans around the world. “‘I Will Survive’ is my mantra, the core of my God-given purpose,'” Gloria advises. “It is my privilege and honor to use it to inspire people around the world of every nationality, race, creed, color and age group to join me as I sing and live the words: ‘I Will Survive.’”
