Debbie Gibson Youngest Female Artist To Write, Record, And Perform A No. 1 Single, Deborah Ann “Debbie” Gibson (born August 31, 1970) is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and actress. In 1988 she was pronounced the youngest artist to write, produce, and perform a No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, with her song “Foolish Beat” and she remains the youngest female to write, record, and perform a No. 1 single to date.

She has gone on to starring roles on Broadway and touring musicals, as well as independent film and television work. She continues to record, and reached the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart as high as No. 24 during 2006 in a duet with Jordan Knight titled “Say Goodbye.” In 2010, the album Ms. Vocalist, from Sony Japan was top 10 on the Japan Billboard charts and the first single from the album, “I Love You,” hit # 1.

Gibson was born in Brooklyn, New York, the third daughter of four for Diane and Joseph Gibson. She grew up in the Long Island suburb of Merrick and was raised Catholic. At the age of five, she began performing in community theater with her sisters Karen, Michele and Denise and cousin T.J Normandin and wrote her first song, “Make Sure You Know Your Classroom.”

At age eight, she sang in the children’s chorus at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York. She began playing the ukulele and taking piano lessons soon after, including with American pianist Morton Estrin. Gibson said that her household was probably the only one where bystanders would hear kids fighting over piano playing time.
