At the end of the day …. “All By Myself …. Céline Dion”!!


~~March 18, 2016~~ 


I saw this video a few days ago.

To see such emotion!

Almost unable to bear,

My heart still hurts.

I can barely begin to imagine how she feels.

May your have the strength to go on, Céline.

He will always be with you.

In your heart, in your memories and in your sons.



Céline Dion breaks down crying while singing ‘All By Myself’

Since her return to Vegas, Céline Dion has paid tribute to her late husband René Angélil onstage with their children and her golden cast of his hand.

Additional footage surfaced of Dion’s return performance and shows the “My Heart Will Go On” singer crying mid-concert after performing “All By Myself” for the first time since Angelil’s passing.

It appears that the lyrics from her hit single cued her emotions that evening. The heartfelt message of the song still resonates with the singer two decades after its 1996 release.


“Don’t want to be … all by myself,” Dion belts out before covering her eyes with her hands.

While Dion was getting choked up after reciting those fateful words, audience members cheered her on as the music continued to play. The songstress took her time finishing the song.

During her first appearance since her husband’s passing, Dion was overcome with emotion more than once.

“I Will Survive” ….. Gloria Gaynor!!


~~March 11, 2015~~ 

It was 36 years ago today when Gloria Gaynor reached the top of the charts with her disco anthem, “I Will Survive“, in 1979.

I remember well. This was an anthem for me and many of my friends. 


This female-empowerment anthem is about moving on after a bad relationship. Over the years, it has taken on meaning for people who have overcome just about any difficult situation, but for the song’s lyricist, Dino Fekaris, it was about getting fired by Motown Records, where he was a staff writer.

Says Fekaris: “They let me go after almost seven years. I was an unemployed songwriter contemplating my fate. I turned the TV on, and there it was: a song I had written for a movie theme titled Generation was playing right then (the song was performed by Rare Earth).

I took that as an omen that things were going to work out for me. I remember jumping up and down on the bed saying, ‘I’m going to make it. I’m going to be a songwriter. I will survive!”



Gloria Gaynor (born September 7, 1949) is an American singer, best known for the disco era hits “I Will Survive” (Hot 100 number 1, 1979), “Never Can Say Goodbye” (Hot 100 number 9, 1974), “Let Me Know (I Have a Right)” (Hot 100 number 42, 1980) and “I Am What I Am” (R&B number 82, 1983).

~Early life~

Gloria Fowles was born in Newark, New Jersey, to Queenie May Proctor and Daniel Fowles. Her grandmother lived nearby and was involved in her upbringing. “There was always music in our house”, Gaynor wrote in her autobiography “I Will Survive”. She enjoyed listening to the radio, and to records by Nat King Cole and Sarah Vaughan.

Her father played the ukulele and guitar and sang professionally in nightclubs with a group called Step ‘n’ Fetchit. Her brothers sang gospel and formed a quartet with a friend. Gaynor was not allowed to sing with the all-male group, nor was her younger brother, Arthur, because he was too young. Arthur later acted as a tour manager for Gaynor.

The family was relatively poor, but Gaynor recalls the house being filled with laughter and happiness, and the dinner table being open to neighborhood friends. They moved to a housing project in 1960 and Gloria grew up as a tomboy. “All through my young life I wanted to sing, although nobody in my family knew it”, Gaynor wrote in her autobiography.

“As it appears in …. full read”


This won the 1979 Grammy for Best Disco Recording.

It was the first and last time that the Grammys offered this category.

Gaynor sees this song as just a simple song about survival, regardless of what you have to overcome. She said: “I love the empowering effect, I love the encouraging effect. It’s a timeless lyric that addresses a timeless concern.”

In June 1998, the French football team (or as Americans call it, soccer) made this their World Cup anthem.

This song became an anthem in the gay community, but its reach extends much farther – it has been reproduced in 20 languages, including Arabic. Predictably, it is also one of the most popular songs to be sung on Karaoke. 

Gaynor is far and away most famous for this song (her autobiography is even called I Will Survive), but she was a formidable Dance singer before she recorded it. She made #9 in 1975 with “Never Can Say Goodbye” and cracked the Hot 100 with her covers of “Walk On By” and “Reach Out, I’ll Be There.”
