Gloria Gaynor 'Will Survive' Coronavirus With TikTok Hand Washing Challenge

Coronavirus isn't going to stop Gloria Gaynor from spreading some optimism across the globe.

Earlier this week, Gaynor joined in on the TikTok movement, otherwise known as the #IWillSurviveChallenge. While lip-syncing to her 1979 smash, the disco legend is seen wetting her hands and scrubbing every crevice with soap. "It only takes :20 seconds to 'SURVIVE!'" she wrote in the caption. At time of press, the post had been liked almost 12,000.

In a separate tweet, Gaynor wrote, "'I Will Survive' has given hope, encouragement and inspiration to fans around the globe. It’s my hope that this song continues to bless & heal during these trying times." Earlier this week, the hit celebrated its 41-year-anniversary of topping the Billboard charts.
