17/04/2012OASIS CANCUN presents GLORIA GAYNOR in concert April 24th at 8:30 p.m.

Oasis Cancun, the entertainment resort, has the honor to present Gloria Gaynor in concert, a legend of the disco music.
Gloria Gaynor, borned at Newark, New Jersey starts her musical carreer with the Soul Satisfiers, a jazz/pop band, in the 1960s.

Her first solo single was “She’ll be sorry / Let me go baby” (1965). She was 19 when she signed her first record contract.
Her first real success came in 1975 with the release of her album Never can say Goodbye, which established her as a disco artist. This song bowed at #1 on the charts and #1 status in dance music. Ever since that time, for more than 30 years, Gloria keeps setting the standard.

She climbs the pop charts again because of her song I will Survive. The lyrics of this song are written from the point of view of a woman, recently dumped, telling her former lover that she can cope without him. The song has become something of an anthem of female emancipation, and is still a staple of office parties, night clubs and kareoke all around the world. The song was awarded the only Grammy Award ever for Best Disco Recording in 1980.

In March of 2001, her single, “Just Keep Thinkin’ About You,” topped the Billboard Dance/Club charts at #1, while her international hit “Last Night” with Giorgio Moroder debuted at #1 throughout Europe. In keeping with the theme of #1, Gloria Gaynor was the first to record an album especially for clubs, and the first to do a mega-extended dance medley party mix, releasing 12″ dance singles that are now high-end collectors items.

In September 2002, Logic Records/BMG released the highly anticipated U.S. LP entitled “I Wish You Love.” That was her first worldwide release in 15 years. It gave birth to 4 #1 dance singles on Billboards Dance Charts as well as her first top ten, “I Never Knew”, on Billboard’s Adult Contemporary Charts. She also recorded a new version of “I Will Survive” in Spanglish, recorded live in Brazil.

Her popularity has continuously flourished into the new millennium. In 2002, she was honored at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo with the coveted LEGEND award presented by long time fan Prince Albert. She made a splash on Broadway in the longest running musical revue, “Smokey Joe’s Café”, and on national TV, as a guest star on such popular programs as “That ‘70’s Show” , “Ally McBeal” and more, introducing her to a whole new generation of fans.

The film industry continues to feature “I Will Survive,” on the soundtrack of more than a half dozen major motion picture releases. VH-1 honored Gloria Gaynor with the number one spot during their countdown of the Top 100 Dance Records of All Time for “I Will Survive”.
On September 19, 2005 Gloria, along with her Hit song “I Will Survive” were inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame during a ceremony that took place in New York City.

Gloria even found time to write an autobiography entitled, “I Will Survive” (St. Martin’s Press) that is a revealing trip through her journey in life.
She also lends her support to numerous charities, ranging from the likes of The Rita Hayworth Gala for Alzheimer’s to Revlon’s Annual Walk for Life.

Oasis Cancun, the entertainment resort, presents live shows, music festival and concerts with success and this time won’t be the exception, we are sure people will sing “I will Survive” and many others songs with this great artist on the stage. The concert promises to be fun and you can be part of this amazing show.
