January 12 marks the one year anniversary of the tragic earthquake in Haiti that claimed the lives of over 300 thousand Haitians. Legendary disco singer Gloria Gaynor is committed to giving back the best way she knows how – through lending her voice to the cause.

“I wanted to be a part of something because I think that everyone should pitch in and do everything that they can,” she told BlackVoices.com in a recent phone interview.

“I recognize that when these things happen, everybody jumps in in the beginning and then people forget about it and go back about their business and the people still need help.”

The ‘Hope and A Future’ benefit concert for Haiti will take place at Harlem’s famed Apollo Theater on Jan.12 at 8 pm. The 61 year-old Newark, New Jersey native will waive her appearance fee for the Community2Community event and perform for free to show her support for the cause.

“I couldn’t find anybody that was interested in me helping when it first happened,” Gaynor revealed. “I started calling and everybody was telling me, ‘We already have enough artists,’ for the benefits they were putting on and it’s not like you could just jump on a plane and go to Haiti.”

She continued, “Since no one was interested, I never did anything. I just donated to Red Cross, but I wanted to do something more.”
