Debby Boone earned instant fame when her first single, “You Light Up My Life” was an overnight hit. The tune claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard charts for ten straight weeks and sold in excess of four million copies. “You Light Up My Life” ranks # 7 in Billboard Magazine’s The Hot 100’s All-Time Top-Charting Songs of the last 5 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 CD and show titled “Swing This” was inspired by her childhood years immersed in the Las Vegas “Swing” culture of the 60’s 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 my whole life to throw”, and you’re invited to join us for this new show, premiering Fall 2011.
Her appearance with the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall in Boston, Massachusetts was a real highlight for Debby and her audience. Richard Kaufman, Principal Pops Conductor of Pacific Symphony confirms, “Debby was a shining light on our Pops season, in the tradition of great singers who bring a song to life just the way the Composer intended. Her voice is superb and her stage presence endearing.”
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.Share
