Description

Debby Boone earned instant fame when her first single, “You Light Up My Life”, was an overnight hit. The tune claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts for 10 straight weeks and sold in excess of four million copies. “You Light Up My Life” ranks No. 7 in Billboard Magazine’s The Hot 100’s All-Time Top-Charting Songs of the last five decades. Debby received the GRAMMY® Award for Best New Artist of the Year, and has since won two additional GRAMMY Awards, and seven GRAMMY nominations.

Debby Boone’s current Concord Records release, Reflections of Rosemary, is an intimate musical portrait of her late mother-in-law, the legendary singer Rosemary Clooney, for whom Debby had great love and respect. The CD is a collection of 14 standards chosen for their significance in Boone’s life with Clooney, and is led by Clooney’s longtime Musical Director, John Oddo. Debby continues to tour Reflections of Rosemary along with John Oddo at performing arts centers and symphony halls throughout the USA.

Debby’s new EP Album and show titled Swing This was inspired by her childhood years immersed in the Las Vegas Swing culture of the ‘60s while traveling with her father, Pat Boone. Swing This is a reflection of the music, glamour, and pure exhilaration that led Debby to become a performer in the first place. In Debby’s own words, Swing This is “the party I’ve been waiting to throw my whole life.”

In addition to her recording career, Debby’s starring roles on Broadway include Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, the role of Maria in Lincoln Center’s 30th Anniversary production of The Sound of Music, and as Rizzo of Grease. Debby toured nationally in Meet Me In St. Louis, and performed the role of Anna in the 50th Anniversary staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s, The King and I at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center in California.

Recent stage performances of Debby’s include New York’s third annual 24 Hour Musicals, whereby Debby was joined by a talented group of nearly 50 industry professionals to write, produce, compose, and perform short original musicals within 24 hours! Additionally, for the third year in a row, Debby performed in this year’s Lyrics and Lyricists event at the 92nd St. Y, with musical director John Oddo. Debby also looks forward to continuing her Christmas Memories show this year with the Gatlin Brothers at the Mansion Theatre in Branson, Missouri.
