Internationally renowned singer/performer Debby Boone returns "by popular demand" to Vicki's of Santa Fe in Indian Wells on Sunday, June 3 from 2:00 -5:00 pm to bring down the curtain on another highly acclaimed season of The Sunday Jazz Series. This is Ms. Boone's fourth sell-out appearance at Vicki's of Santa Fe.
For this performance she will be backed by an all star band of Andy Langham on Piano, AlLen Goodman on Drums, Jeff Jarvis on Trumpet, Gene "Cip" Cipriano on Saxophone, Woodwinds and Flute, Les Benedict on Trombone and Larry Holloway on Bass. Debby Boone earned instant fame when her first single, "You Light Up My Life", was an overnight hit. The tune claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard charts for 10 straight weeks and sold in excess of four million copies. "You Light Up My Life" ranks # 7 in Billboard Magazine's The Hot 100's All-Time Top-Charting Songs of the last five decades.
Debby received the GRAMMY® Award for Best New Artist of the Year, and has since won two additional GRAMMY Awards, and seven GRAMMY nominations. Debby's new EP Album and show titled "Swing This" was inspired by her childhood years immersed in the Las Vegas "Swing" culture of the '60's while traveling with her father, Pat Boone. "Swing This" is a reflection of the music, glamour, and pure exhilaration that led Debby to become a performer in the first place. In Debby's own words, "Swing This" is "the party I've been waiting to throw my whole life."
In addition to her recording career, Debby's starring roles on Broadway include Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, the role of Maria in Lincoln Center's 30th Anniversary production of The Sound of Music, and as Rizzo of Grease. Debby toured nationally in Meet Me In St. Louis, and performed the role of Anna in the 50th Anniversary staging of Rodgers and Hammerstein's, The King and I at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Center in California. Recent stage performances of Debby's include New York's third annual "24 Hour Musicals", whereby Debby was joined by a talented group of nearly 50 industry professionals to write, produce, compose, and perform short original musicals within 24 hours! Additionally, for the third year in a row, Debby performed in this year's "Lyrics and Lyricists" event at the 92nd St. Y, with musical director John Oddo.
