"I Will Survive" was recorded in 1978, as Gloria Gaynor's tale of personal strength and was soon to become the greatest disco anthem of all time. In 1979, "I Will Survive" climbed to the top of Billboard's Pop Charts and claimed the #1 position on two different occasions. That year, "I Will Survive" won the Grammy for Best Disco Song. In 1980, Gaynor's version of "Never Can Say Good-Bye" became the first dance song to reach #1 status in dance music. In 1984, Gloria recorded "I Am What I Am," which reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Dance Disco Hits.
Thelma Houston has 23 albums, and over 43 years of performing. She scored a #1 hit with "Don't Leave Me This Way", which won the 1978 Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance. Houston was recently inducted into the "Dance Music Hall of Fame" in New York City and was honored as an "Apollo Legend" on the hit TV show, "Showtime at the Apollo" for her amazing career in music.
Anita Ward was a schoolteacher before catapulting to fame with the chart topper "Ring My Bell". In 1979 the single reached #1 in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom . Her follow up single, "Don't Drop My Love" reached the Billboard top 100 in the US.
Evelyn Champagne King was discovered after a producer heard her singing in a washroom at Philadelphia International Records.

She also had hits with "Love Come Down" and "I'm In Love".
