Wiki

Debby Boone (born Deborah Ann Boone, on September 22, 1956) is an American singer and theater actress. She is best known for her 1977 hit, "You Light Up My Life," which spent ten weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and won her a Grammy award the following year for Best New Artist.

In the 1980s, her career shifted in different directions, initially starting in Country music, and then switching over into Christian music earning four Top 10 Contemporary Christian albums as well as two more Grammys.

Debby Boone was born September 22, 1956 in Hackensack, New Jersey, USA, the daughter of singer and 1950s icon Pat Boone and Shirley Lee Foley Boone (daughter of country music star Red Foley). When Boone was 14 years old, she began touring with her parents and three sisters - Cherry, Lindy and Laury. The sisters first recorded with their parents as The Pat Boone Family and later as the Boones. Although they primarily recorded gospel music, they twice reached Billboard's AC charts with 1975's "When The Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes" (No. 25) and 1977's "Hasta MaƱana" (No. 32) which featured Debby as lead vocalist.
