Grammy Award-winning artist Gloria Gaynor says she’s been working with some of Christian music’s biggest names for her upcoming gospel album, Testimony.

“I’m blessed to have access to four wonderful artists to record with me on this album,” Gaynor told Fox News on Thursday.

She went on to say that her collaborators include Jason Crabb, Mike Farris, MercyMe’s Bart Millard and Yolanda Adams.

“The title of this album is Testimony and that’s because these songs are my testimony and I’m happy and blessed to be able say that the people that are singing with me on this album it’s their testimony as well,” Gaynor said.

The anticipated album is due out later this year but the 67 year old is already influencing people beyond the recording studio.

“Gloria Gaynor is the sweetest person! Recording with her — a legend, an icon — is an honor. What’s even better is becoming friends with her and witnessing her true love for God and His children. She’s a treasure and I love her,” Crabb told the Christian Post about his personal experience of recording with the disco diva.

While Gaynor is gearing up for the release of Testimony, the New Jersey native is being honored and inducted into the Library of Congress’ music registry for her 1979 hit “I Will Survive.” Translated into over 20 languages, Gaynor’s classic anthem has marked her as one of disco’s most notable singers. She’s also the recipient of Grammy’s one and only Disco Song of the Year Award.
