This Day in History - Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" Wins First--and Last--Grammy Awarded for Best Disco Recording

It must be true--Disco will never die. Even now, some stations play Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive." On February 27, 1980, this recording was awarded the first--and last--Grammy for Best Disco Recording.   Others nominated in this category were: Earth, Wind & Fire for "Boogie Wonderland;" Michael Jackson for "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough;" Rod Stewart for "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?"; and Donna Summer for "Bad Girls." This category was eliminated from the awards the following year.
