As a singer, entertainer and host, Gloria Loring is known for her energy, commitment and joy. Having made more than 1000 appearances on television as both a singer and an actress, she brings a familiar face and name to everything she does. She is the recording artist of the #1 hit song Friends and Lovers; co-composer of television theme songs Diff’rent Strokes and Facts Of Life; an audience favorite from daytime TV’s Days Of Our Lives; spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the author of four books for people living with diabetes; a keynote speaker for corporations and non-profits; and one of the few artists to sing two nominated songs at the Academy Awards.
She just completed a series of symphony concerts in tribute to Barbra Streisand that prompted standing ovations and rave reviews. Her newest musical show, TV Tunez, is a celebration of television’s best theme songs that premiered to standing ovations and is now in pre-production for a Las Vegas run. She is currently in the studio recording songs by songwriting legends such as Burt Bachrach and Desmond Child.
She recently completed writing Coincidence Is God's Way of Remaining Anonymous, a spiritual autobiography of how a series of extraordinary coincidences transformed her life, and is about to begin work on its sequel, Life Doesn't Have To Be a Soap Opera: How I Learned to Drop the Drama.
Gloria is a certified yoga instructor and an articulate champion of bio-medical research. After her son Brennan was diagnosed with diabetes at age four, she created and self-published two volumes of the Days Of Our Lives Celebrity Cookbook which raised more than $1 million for diabetes research. She also has three published books, Kids, Food and Diabetes, Parenting a Child with Diabetes, and Living With Type 2 Diabetes: Moving past the Fear.
Gloria is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women.
