Her performance will include a special tribute to her mother-in-law, Rosemary Clooney. The concert also coincides with the 40th anniversary release of her hit song, "You Light Up My Life."
The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Investors Bank Arts Center, Sewell. Audiences of all ages are welcome.
Debby Boone has enjoyed Top 10 successes on the Pop, Country, Adult Contemporary and Contemporary Christian charts. “You Light Up My Life” is one of the most popular recordings in modern music history and remains in the Top 10 of Billboard’s most successful singles of the past 60 years. It won both the Oscar and Grammy Awards in 1978 for Best Song and the American Music Award for Best Pop Single.
