Watch Matthew McConaughey sing ‘I Will Survive’ ... kinda


Matthew McConaughey: actor, philanthropist, Texas Longhorn legend, disco superstar. A gaggle of Hollywood celebrities got together for W magazine’s medley of Gloria Gaynor’s 1979 hit “I Will Survive,” and if there was one voice that needed to join this modern-day “We Are the World,” it was the pride of Uvalde.

The “Gold” actor joined stars like Amy Adams, Andrew Garfield, Taraji P. Henson and Chris Pine for the video.

W magazine, in an accompanying article, bills the video as a “the kind of anthem we need now more than ever with the inauguration approaching.”

When not interpreting the crossover hits of the 1970s, McConaughey can also be seen promoting his upcoming film “Gold” at places like Alamo Drafthouse.
