DEBBY BOONE is a multiple cross-over artist who has enjoyed Top 10 successes on the Pop, Country, Adult Contemporary, and Contemporary Christian charts.
She became a household name thanks to her record-breaking debut single You Light Up My Life in 1977, charting #1 on Billboard for ten straight weeks and selling in excess of four million albums. That year she received the Grammy for Best New Artist and has since received seven Grammy nominations, winning two more. In 2008, the song was ranked #7 in Billboard‘s 50th Anniversary all-time top charting songs.
Debby has appeared a number of times on stage in New York, including Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1982), Lincoln Center’s 30th Anniversary production of The Sound of Music (1989), as well as in the part of Rizzo in the revival of Grease (1996). She also toured nationally in Meet Me In St. Louis (1990) and performed the role of Anna in The King and I on a west coast regional tour (2001). She starred in a production of Into The Woods in May of 2016 in Colorado, and in July 2018 in 42nd Street in Arizona.
Debby’s last album release was her thirteenth studio recording, Swing This, music that is evocative of the golden age of Las Vegas. Her accompanying show, which premiered at New York City’s Carlyle Hotel, continues to entertain audiences at performing arts centers, casinos, and symphony halls throughout the U.S. Debby celebrates memories and stories from her formative years, when her father, Pat Boone, was headlining at the Sands and Sahara Hotels. She also shares stories of eventually getting to work with members of the Rat Pack like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.
