Tavis Smiley interview

23 Jan, 2014

Gaynor discusses her career and memoir, We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration, and the Power of Song, in this interview for PBS.

Well I first started collecting the stories in my head because people were telling them to me. Ever since I first recorded the song, people have been telling me these stories, and the stories have been uplifting, encouraging to me, so I thought I’m being a little bit selfish here. I need to share this encouragement, this inspiration, with the world, and hence the idea for the book.
