Popular Christian music singer Debby Boone is known for her '70s hit "You Light Up My Life," which stayed at number one for ten weeks in 1977 and won her a Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Born in New Jersey, Boone's life was full of music growing up. Her father was Pat Boone, popular singer of the '50s. At the age of 14, Boone began touring with her three sisters and her father. Her first solo effort was "You Light Up My Life" and it gained her immediate fame and fortune. As pop music changed in the '80s to include not only music but videos, Boone found it hard to keep up the pace. '80s pop music seemed more about the image than the message behind the music. She turned her interests to Christian and inspirational music. Her albums include The Best of Debby Boone, Songs of Debby Boone, and Friends for Life released on Sparrow Records. She won two more Grammy awards in the Christian and inspirational categories.
