Gloria Raichuk

Gloria Raichuk - Vote for Gloria Raichuk

Gloria was born in Delisle, Saskatchewan in December of 1960. Her family was musically inclined. When Gloria's dad entered her into Sask Youth Talent in the 1970s, her love for singing was realized. CFQC even gave those involved on-air time to show their talent. How thrilling that felt! Singing the national anthem a time or two in the old arena was also an honour. Over the years Gloria sang with local church choirs, groups, Elim's TV ensemble, Heartwood Band. Currently, she is involved in helping a Saskatoon church with leading a song service. Gloria is grateful to be a part of Zoomer Idol 2017.
