Recording artist, songwriter and three-time Grammy Award winner Debby Boone is set to perform her Billboard chart-toppers at the Suncoast Showroom May 16 and 17.
In 1977, Boone’s career reached instant stardom when her song, “You Light Up My Life” became one of the most popular songs in history and topped the Billboard chart at #1 for 10 consecutive weeks. Additionally, Boone won the Grammy Award for “Best New Artist.” In 2008, “Billboard’s 50th Anniversary All-Time Chart-Topping Songs” ranked Boone’s song as #7 on their list.
Following the success of “You Light Up My Life,” Boone displayed her versatility as an artist and crossed over to county music. Some of Boone’s country songs include “In Memory of Your Love” and a cover of Connie Francis’ “My Heart Has a Mind of Its Own.”
In June 2013, Boone released her 13th album, “Swing This,” which combines songs and experiences from the golden era of Las Vegas during the 60’s when her father, Pat Boone, performed at the Sands and Sahara hotels. Boone sings of the galvanizing experiences that exhilarated the 60’s and inspired her to become a performer.
