Gloria Scott was born in Port Arthur, Texas on February 26, 1946, the second child of nine children. “My mother was a singer,” said Gloria, describing her family and musical background. “She sang gospel along with Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers but she decided she wanted to settle and have a family so she stepped back from her professional singing. But she still always sang in church. When I was little she would take me to church with her and I would fall asleep. And I’d wake up and I’d hear my mom’s voice and then go right back to sleep again!” She laughed as she continued: “I started in church too, although I didn’t do a great deal of singing while I was there but I listened. When I got into my singing properly I guess that church influence was there. Gloria has had a extensive career so far,which includes working with the Late,Great,Legendary Barry White. "But now I’m back into gospel again, which is wonderful because gospel music is just great.”
