Gloria Gaynor has done her bit to help during the coronavirus outbreak by sharing a video of herself washing her hands while singing her hit I Will Survive.
The track is one of a string of songs people are using to help them follow guidance from health professionals to wash their hands for 20 seconds.
We all need this Grant! 😘â¤ï¸🙏👏👏 https://t.co/zi6brqxm7y— Gloria Gaynor (@gloriagaynor) March 13, 2020
The video has sparked the I Will Survive challenge, in which people share videos of themselves washing their hands while singing the song.
Gaynor wrote: “I love that people are taking part in the #iwillsurvivechallenge to #washyourhands and are duetting with me on @tiktok like @ajslambino did!
“Stay safe and healthy everyone! Wash your hands often every day for 20 seconds or more.”
Earlier this week, Gaynor marked 41 years since I Will Survive topped the Billboard charts in the US.
She shared a picture of the record sleeve on Instagram.
Under it, she wrote: “Forty one years ago today on March 10, 1979 our song, “ I WILL SURVIVE,” went to the #1 spot on the @billboard charts and began its journey to become a mantra and anthem for survivors of all kinds around this beautiful globe!”
