We LOVE this cover!
I Will Survive is such a great song, it's pretty tough to eff up, but it takes something special to make the Gloria Gaynor your own.
And with her own personal struggles in the public eye, Demi Lovato has just the right amount of defiance behind her gorgeous-as-always vocals!

This holds some serious clout, especially coming from him!
Elton John has nothing but praise for Lady GaGa's upcoming album, Born This Way, and even claims that its title track will knock Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive' off its thrown as number one gay anthem!
“She and I come from exactly the same place. She's kind of like the bastard daughter of Elton John. I love her, and I love her ability to write. There’s a chance I might do one track with her, but she’s so busy and I’m so busy, we can never get together! But her record – it’s fucking amazing. ‘Born This Way,’ which is the title song, will completely get rid of Gloria Gaynor’s 'I Will Survive.' This is the new 'I Will Survive.' That was the gay anthem. This is the new gay anthem. Actually, it’s not a gay anthem – it can apply to anybody.”
Very true! GaGa sings about issues that apply to EVERYONE!
But this is amazing news!
We can't wait to hear the album!!!
