Biografía de Debby Boone



Born Deborah Anne Boone, 22 September 1956, Hackensack, New Jersey, USA. The third daughter of pop/country/gospel singer Pat Boone and wife Shirley and granddaughter of country star Red Foley. She worked with the Boone family from 1969 and sang with her sisters in a gospel quartet. In 1977, she went solo achieving a 10-week stay at number 1 in the US pop charts and sales in excess of four million with her Warner/Curb recording of the title song, (a gentle ballad), from the film YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE . She won the Grammy for Best New Artist and the song won an Oscar for Best Original Song. The album of the same name eventually went platinum with sales of two million. The song also gave her her debut in the US country charts, where it peaked at number 4. The following year, she had Top 40 country hits with "God Knows" and "Baby I'm Yours" and in 1979, a number 11 with her version of "My Heart Has A Mind Of Its Own"—a 1960 pop number 1 for Connie Francis. Her biggest country hit came in 1980, a number 1 with "Are You On The Road To Loving Me Again." She married Gabriel Ferrer, the son of actor José Ferrer and singer Rosemary Clooney. In the early '80s, after a few more minor hits, she decided to pursue an acting career. She felt that it was dishonest for her to seek further success as a country singer when it was not really her first choice of music.
