Singer, songwriter, actress and producer Debbie Gibson was born in Brooklyn and raised in Long Island, NY. Her 1987 debut album, Out of the Blue, went triple-platinum and launched her unparalleled career at the age of 16. The album’s single “Foolish Beat” made Gibson the youngest artist to write, produce, and perform a #1 track on the Billboard Hot 100—she is still the youngest female to do so, to date. As the sole composer on each of her Top 20 singles, Gibson was recognized by ASCAP as Songwriter of the Year in 1989. She has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide and released 10 studio albums and five compilations.
