"I Made It Through the Rain" is a song that became a hit after it was recorded by American singer Barry Manilow, also included on his 1980 album, Barry. The song was originally recorded by its co-writer Gerard Kenny who composed it with Drey Shepperd about a struggling musician who never gives up. Manilow heard the song and revised the lyric with Jack Feldman and Bruce Sussman to make the song about the everyday persons struggles, rather than those of a profession. Manilow's version peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at #4 on the Adult Contemporary chart.[1] Kenny's original version was included on his 1979 RCA Records album called "Made It Through The Rain", which reached the top 20 of the UK Albums Chart and remains on his set-list at concerts as of 2016.
