1968 ‘Days of Our Lives’ star Gloria Loring sings on ‘Sullivan’

‘The Ed Sullivan Show’ featured singer Gloria Loring in 1968 for a fantastic performance that combined two great songs. Ed introduces her, saying, “From the Hotel Plaza’s Persian Room, here’s Miss Gloria Loring.”

Gloria appears in a long flowing gown matching her long blonde hair. She stands in front of an aqua-colored background with pillars that have shimmering ribbons hanging from them.

She sings the Franki Valli hit, ‘You’re Just Too Good to Be True’ into the Supremes’ hit, ‘I’m Gonna Make You Love Me.’ She moves back and forth between the two songs, dramatically singing and moving to express the words.

She has a huge smile while singing and moves her body with energy. Surprisingly, the two iconic pop songs blend together seamlessly. Gloria’s excitement and stage charisma really shine through in this upbeat performance.

Gloria Loring is now best known for playing ‘Liz Chandler’ in ‘Days of Our Lives’ for six seasons. Her last big hit was a duet with Carl Anderson titled ‘Friends and Lovers,’ it reached number two on the Billboard chart in 1986.

Gloria often appeared on TV in the ’60s and ’70s, including ‘The Carol Burnett Show.’ She was a guest on ‘The Bobby Vinton Show.’ Gloria and her husband, Alan Thicke, wrote the TV theme songs to ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ and ‘The Facts of Life.’

Gloria’s incredible talent has been on display for decades, and Ed Sullivan gave her a big opportunity to showcase her skills in 1968. She went on to have a fabulous career in entertainment.
