The “I Will Survive” diva is fronting the five-part “W.A.K.E. Up & Flexx” series as part of her ongoing mission to raise awareness of osteoarthritis of the knee, a disease she was diagnosed with in 1984.

“My osteoarthritis knee pain began as an inconvenience and grew until it affected my ability to be active,” said Gaynor. “I am thrilled about hosting the W.A.K.E. Up & Flexx exercise video series as each exercise is a simple and convenient way to help improve strength and mobility of the knee and that’s definitely something to sing about.”
