"Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You" is a popular song by Gerry Goffin and Michael Masser. It was originally recorded by George Benson for his 1984 album 20/20.

The song achieved worldwide success in a cover version by Hawaiian singer Glenn Medeiros in 1987 and 1988.

Medeiros originally released this on a small independent label at the age of 16, after winning a local radio talent contest in Hawaii. A visiting radio executive from KZZP in Phoenix, Arizona heard the song and took the record back to Phoenix, where, through word of mouth, it became a national hit. A massive worldwide hit, it reached Number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent four weeks at number one on the UK singles chart in July 1988.

The music video features Medeiros with a girl in a pink dress strolling around a beach.

Glenn Medeiros also recorded the song in Spanish under the title Nada cambiará mi amor por ti.

The song became quite popular in Spanish-speaking countries when Argentine singer-songwriter Sergio Denis also recorded a cover version for his album Afectos (1985), with Spanish lyrics written by Rolando J. Hernández.

In 2009, the song was used in France in a television advert for Spontex sponges.[1]
