New Music From Tower Of Power And Gloria Gaynor

Sunday, February 2

Sunday on Soulsations, its brand new music from Tower of Power. The Oakland band has been going strong for more than five decades! Also hear the latest gospel from Gloria Gaynor.  She's known for her massively popular, Grammy-winning 1978 tune "I Will Survive". Gaynor’s latest album Testimony just picked up a 2020 Grammy for Best Roots Gospel Album. We'll hear Yolanda Adams talk about her pleasure in working with Gaynor on the tune "Talkin' 'Bout Jesus" from that award-winning album.   

Here's Tower of Power performing an NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert in 2018:
