Nashville, TN (January 27, 2020)
Gaither Music Group is proud to congratulate legendary songstress Gloria Gaynor for her GRAMMY® Award win on Sunday night.
Gaynor received a Best Roots Gospel Album GRAMMY for Testimony, her powerful new gospel album. Gloria was also nominated for Best Gospel Performance/Song for “Talkin’ ‘Bout Jesus,” a stirring gospel track featuring Yolanda Adams.
Since its release last summer, Testimony has been drawing praise for its collection of original inspirational songs and soulful hymns—from Gaynor’s powerful take on “Amazing Grace” to “Man of Peace,” her cover of the Bob Dylan classic. Recorded in Nashville’s iconic former RCA Studio A and released by Gaither Music, the album features a sensational lineup of talent alongside Gaynor, including special guests Jason Crabb, Mike Farris, and Bart Millard (MercyMe), as well as backup vocals from Latrese Bush, Melinda Doolittle, Jason Eskridge, and Emoni Wilkins.
“I am ecstatic and truly grateful to God for gifts and favor, to the Academy for this recognition and honor and to the Gaithers, Primary Wave and ‘Team Gaynor’ for their love, support, and expertise,” said Gaynor.
“We are honored to represent this gospel release from Gloria,” stated Paul Sizelove, president of the label. “Not only did she make a stellar recording, she created a work of art that celebrates her journey of faith. It has been a joy to partner with her and her team to share these songs with the world.”
