Earlier this week I had a chance to chat with pop and Broadway star Debbie Gibson about the songs she wrote for Cirque Musica and her protoge’ Ali Isabella, who will be performing both of the songs Debbie wrote for the show.
If you haven’t already, get your tickets for the show. There are two performances; one at 3pm and another at 7:30pm at Dr. Pepper Arena in Frisco.
A few fun facts about Debbie Gibson:
Debbie wrote two songs for Cirque Musica, “Bird Song” and “Be the Music.”
Graduated with honors from Calhoun High School in Merrick, New York.
Was the youngest person to write, produce, and perform a number one hit, “Foolish Beat”. She was 17. An honor she still holds to this day.
Won the “ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Award” in 1989, an award she shared with Bruce Springsteen.
Funny quote: “That it’s been almost two decades since “Out Of the Blue” and ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic has yet to parody even *one* of my songs makes me feel curiously left-out.”
