For more than 25 years, Debbie Gibson has proven she’s an entertainer of immeasurable talent. From singer, songwriter and musician to actress and dancer, she embodies what it truly means to be an entertainer. A music prodigy, Gibson exploded on the Billboard Pop Charts at the tender age of 16 with the self-penned “Only In My Dreams.” The “Original Pop Princess” quickly became the youngest person ever to write, produce and perform a No. 1 hit song, “Foolish Beat,” a record she still holds today in the Guinness Book of World Records. To date, Gibson has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide, performed for British Royalty and hosted “The American Music Awards,” produced by friend and legend Dick Clark.
After conquering the pop world with three consecutive albums and world tours, she set her sights on the theater and starred in 17 musicals in 17 years. Gibson took a star turn in the Broadway production of Les Miserables as Eponine. She broke box office records in the London West End production of Grease as Sandy. She then took the stage in the U.S. Broadway tours of Grease and Funny Girl, playing Rizzo and Fanny Brice respectively. Gibson also wowed critics as Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Gypsy Rose Lee in Gypsy, The Narrator in the national tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Cinderella in the national production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella with Eartha Kitt, Velma Kelly in Chicago, Sally Bowles in the Broadway revival of Cabaret, Martha in Company, and Maggie in Brigadoon.
Continuing to dazzle with entertainment magic, Gibson bridged the gap between pop music and Broadway with her one-woman show Pop Goes Broadway. During her sold out summer run in 2008 at The Concert Venue at Harrah’s, critics agreed it was “the best show Atlantic City has seen in quite some time…it’s totally entertaining.” Phil Roura of the New York Daily News said, “she has mastered her craft to the point where she just doesn’t perform a song – she embraces it and delivers it with her own special stamp of approval.” To fill her passion of mentoring and fostering young performers and songwriters, in 2008 she created “Debbie Gibson’s Electric Youth,” a series of performing arts camps and music boot camps.
In 2010, Gibson made her debut in the world of orchestration for Dr. Rutledge’s documentary, 3 Billion and Counting, about Malaria prevention in third world countries. She collaborated on the score and the powerful closing credits song, “Rise,” which was shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination. Gibson also guest starred in Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy at MGM/Foxwoods. Gibson then released a new album, “Ms. Vocalist,” from Sony Japan that made top 10 on the Billboard charts and the first single, “I Love You,” hit No. 1. She also headlined a sold out tour.
In 2011, Gibson starred with Tiffany in the SyFy hit Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid, which led to a joint sold out tour as well as a performance on GMA’s Summer Concert Series. She also appeared in Katy Perry’s hit music video for “Last Friday Night (TGIF).”
As a spokesperson for Children International, she spent time in impoverished villages in Manila. For more than 20 years, she has been a child sponsor and advocate. In 2012, she raised more than $50,000 for Children International on “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Debbie is also the founder of the Pustizzi Alzheimer Foundation, which she started in honor of her late grandfather Albert Pustizzi. She is involved in many other philanthropic activities including the TJ Martell Foundation, the Make A Wish Foundation, and Pediatric AIDS.
Debbie made a cameo in the 2012 film Rock of Ages, as part of Russell Brand’s Rocker Posse. Her other movie credits include: Body/Antibody, Melissa in Coffee Date, Deborah Gibson in Soulkeeper, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, My X-Girlfriend’s Wedding Reception, The Manhattan Project, Sweet Liberty, and Ghostbusters.
She has guest starred on many television shows including “Rita Rocks,” “That ‘80s Show,” “Maggie Bloom,” “Fox After Breakfast,” “Step by Step,” and “Street Justice.” She has also appeared in made for TV movies including Celeste in the City and Teen Queens. In 2003, she was a judge on the “American Idol” spin-off “American Juniors,” which featured young kids instead of teenagers and young adults.
From No. 1 hits and platinum albums to starring roles on Broadway, film and TV, Gibson is a true entertainer with timeless talent and charisma.
