Gibson Debbie Bio

Deborah Ann "Debbie" Gibson (born August 31, 1970) is an American singer-songwriter who was the original teen pop queen. Her career took off in 1987 and at the age of 16, Gibson was the youngest artist ever to write, produce, and perform a # 1 hit single with her song "Foolish Beat", which she still holds the title in the, Guinness Book of World Records.

She appeared repeatedly on the covers of teen magazines (in the USA), such as Tiger Beat. She has gone on to starring roles on Broadway and touring musicals, as well as independent film and television work. She continues to record, and reached the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart as high as # 24 during 2006 in a duet with Jordan Knight titled "Say Goodbye."

Gibson was born in Brooklyn, New York, the third daughter of Diane and Joseph Gibson. She grew up in the Long Island suburb of Merrick. At the age of five, she began performing in community theater with her sisters Karen, Michele and Denise and wrote her first song, "Make Sure You Know Your Classroom." When she was eight, she sang in the children's chorus at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. She began playing the ukulele and taking piano lessons soon thereafter, including with noted American pianist Morton Estrin. Gibson has stated that her household was probably the only one where you would hear kids fighting over piano playing time.
