Last night, American queen of disco Gloria Gaynor, performed in Israel, but not before she dropped in on the Peres Center for Peace and displayed her Hebrew singing skills.
I am guessing it was highly appreciated, because it looks like Shimon (or someone else) asked her to repeat the performance!
WATCH: Gloria Gaynor sing a Hebrew prayer! The queen of disco is currently in Israel for her concert tonight and took the time to drop by the Peres Center for Peace, along with Brazilian musicians Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso. “I love Israel and I am happy to be here,” Gloria told the former Israeli president. “I believe music brings people together.” We’re so happy to see all these artists raise their voices for peace. We know peace is possible, and music can help us get there.A big thanks to all the artists who will soon be traveling to Israel and creating a space for peace and togetherness through music!

She also told Shimmy “I love Israel and I am happy to be here.”
Happy to have you, Gloria.
