Yes…everyone wants to know about Clay Aiken!! Most of the headlines on the Internet that talk about Celebrity Apprentice, mention Clay Aiken and Debbie Gibson…but they almost always show a picture of Clay (By the way, where are all the new pictures of Clay?)
I remember Debbie Gibson’s name…but I will admit that I knew very little about her…I wanted to know more. I found the following information on Debbie’s Internet Site. You can find lots of information HERE
Gibson exploded on the pop music scene at the tender age of 16. A music prodigy, she quickly became the youngest person ever to write, produce and perform a number one single, (“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.
To fill her passion of mentoring and fostering young performers and songwriters, she created “Debbie Gibson’s Electric Youth,” a series of performing arts camps and music bootcamps. In addition, she formed the “Gibson Girl Foundation,” a non-profit organization that awards scholarships and musical educational opportunities to underprivileged children who display talent and have a desire to participate in performing arts programs.
In 2010, Gibson made her debut in the world of orchestration. She collaborated on both the score and the powerful closing credits song, “Rise,” for Dr. Rutledge’s documentary, “3 Billion and Counting,” about Malaria prevention in third world countries. Gibson guest starred in “Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy” at MGM/Foxwoods. The “Original Pop Princess” also released a new album, “Ms. Vocalist,” from Sony Japan that was top 10 on the Billboard charts and the first single, “I Love You,” hit No. 1.
As the new spokesperson for Children International, she spent time in early 2011 in impoverished villages in Manila. For more than 20 years, she has been a child sponsor and advocate. Gibson also starred with Tiffany in the SyFy hit “Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid.” Recently, she shot a cameo in the upcoming film “Rock of Ages,” appeared in Katy Perry’s hit music video for “Last Friday Night (TGIF),” and took a Took a Journey Through the 80′s on a sold out tour with Tiffany. Currently, Gibson’s recording a new U.S. album. The first single “Rise,” which was shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination, is now available on iTunes.
From number one hits and platinum albums to starring roles on Broadway, film and TV, Gibson is a true entertainer with talent and charisma.
Now, that is an impressive biography. I am really glad that I learned so much about this lady. She is an award winning musician and someone who wants to make the world a better place for everyone!! Now I am looking forward to watching her on Celebrity Apprentice.
Do you remember seeing this picture of Debbie and Clay? She attended the Timeless Tour at Foxwoods. Its fun that she got to visit with Clay.
