Nadia Bjorlin & Gloria Gaynor Duet – October 22, 2009
(West Hollywood, CA) — Grammy-winning singer Gloria Gaynor and “Days of our Lives” actress Nadia Bjorlin team up to perform together for the very first time, “Tell Him”, as Gloria takes the GRAMMY Sound Stage to celebrate the 30th anniversary of her smash hit “I Will Survive.”
“Nadia Bjorlin is on my favorite daytime drama, “Days of our Lives.” says Gaynor. “I’m a huge fan of the show and of hers from her TV and film projects. We also share some of the same representation, so I asked her if she would want to perform a duet with me and she called me right away and said ‘yes!!’, explains Gaynor.
“I was totally blown away when Ms. Gaynor asked me if I would perform with her! I’m a longtime fan of hers and it’s an HONOR to be asked to sing with GLORIA GAYNOR!” says Nadia Bjorlin.
Gaynor has been busy celebrating 30 years of “I Will Survive” this year. The song reached #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the Spring of 1979, not only once, but twice, and was #1 all over the world in nearly every country. The song has yet to be off radio playlists since that time. She also won a GRAMMY in 1980 for the first and only category of its kind, “Best Disco Song”. The category had its inception in 1980 and the category was dropped altogether by 1981.
Bjorlin herself comes from a musical background. She was classically trained when she was younger and her father was the late Ulf Bjorlin, international composer from Sweden, and Bjorlin herself has performed on “Days of our Lives” on numerous occasions and performs on a regular basis at fan, sports and charity events. In 2008 she and her brothers Ulf and Jean Paul, all known professionally as The Bjorlin Trio, released a crossover/classical EP.
