Branigan tweet

ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – ‘Gloria’ singer Laura Branigan died long before the Blues started using her song to celebrate, but her management company is on board with the victory anthem!

A Twitter page that appears to be run by Other Half Entertainment, which, according to their website, carries on and oversees the musical legacy of the multi-platinum recording artist, has embraced St. Louis Blues’ fans love for the song.

The verified Laura Branigan page has retweeted many ‘Gloria' Blues fan videos, but it is going viral for the apparent response to a man asking to “PLAY GLORIA (for the Bruins).”

The page’s May 13 response to a tweet showing a ‘Play Gloria’ shirt in Boston Bruins colors was: “WHAT is this???”Play Gloria” is NOT a Bruins thing...it’s a @StLouisBlues thing! Try again! #LetsGoBlues #PlayGloria #LauraBranigan #Gloria ~ Kathy, Other Half Entertainment”

Branigan died in 2004 from a previously-undiagnosed ventricular brain aneurysm.
