Debbie Gibson burst onto the music scene at 16 and instantly became the youngest artist in history to write, produce and perform a number-one hit, “Foolish Beat.” She is still the youngest female and has held the world record for more than three decades. Gibson has sold more than 16 million albums and has starred in 17 musicals in 17 years, from Broadway’s Les Miserables to the West End’s Grease.
In 2019, Gibson joined NKOTB on The Mixtape Arena Tour. Later that year, she also served as a celebrity judge on Nickelodeon’s “America’s Most Musical Family.” In 2020, her single “Girls’ Night Out” soared to No. 4 on the U.S. Billboard and U.K. MusicWeek charts.
2021 was a busy year for Gibson. Her guest-starring role in the musical episode of “Lucifer” debuted on Netflix. She completed her “Debbie Gibson & Joey McIntyre: Live from Las Vegas” mini-residency at The Venetian® Resort Las Vegas. Gibson released a new duet of “Lost in Your Eyes,” featuring Joey McIntyre, as well as the DJ Tracy Young co-penned “One Step Closer,” with an exclusive remix debuting on the Debbie Gibson Peloton Ride. Her first pop album of original material in 20 years, The Body Remembers, came out on her own label Stargirl Records to rave reviews. The new album promptly shot up to No. 2 on the Apple Pop Sales Charts and achieved one million streams in its first month.
In 2022, Stargirl Records released “One Step Closer Remixes” reaching No. 3 on the Swiss dance charts and landing at No. 8 on the Commercial Pop MusicWeek chart in the UK. Gibson became the new brand ambassador for Dr. Kellyanne’s Bone Broth and appeared on CBS Secret Celebrity Renovation. She embarked on a U.S. solo tour of “The Body Remembers” and celebrated the 35th anniversary of her debut album Out of the Blue with three sold-out shows in NYC. Gibson’s first full-length holiday album Winterlicious was released, and her holiday tour of the same name kicked off with sold-out shows and acclaim that ended with a magical performance on “Good Morning America.”
Gibson shows no signs of slowing down. Most recently, she competed in Criss Angel’s Magic With The Stars, opposite Donny Osmond as well as Season 9 of The Masked Singer as the Night Owl . This spring, she will release a new single and music video, “Love Don’t Care,” off The Body Remembers. “The Body Remembers Encore” U.S. tour kicks off May 25 in Niagara Falls.
From No. 1 hits and platinum albums to starring roles on stage and screen, Debbie Gibson is a true entertainer with timeless talent and charisma.
