Deborah Cox possesses one of the most powerful and versatile contemporary voices of our time. The Grammy Award nominated, multi-platinum R & B/Pop recording artist and actress recently blew the roof off theatres as she starred in the Rachel Maron role originally played by Whitney Houston in the new musical “The Bodyguard”. She made her Broadway debut in the leading role in Elton John and Time Rice’s musical “Aida”, receiving rave reviews. In 2013, she yet again demonstrated her wide range through her emotional portrayal of Lucy in the revival of hit Broadway musical “Jekyll & Hyde”. In 2016 Deborah starred as the legendary Josephine Baker in the original musical “Josephine” at the Asolo Repertory Theatre.

Since beginning her career as a background singer for Celine Dion, Deborah has recorded six award winning and critically acclaimed albums and has written for and been recorded on numerous soundtracks. She later collaborated with Whitney Houston to record the duet “Same Script Different Cast” for Whitney’s greatest hits CD.

From her second CD. One Wish, came the double platinum “Nobody’s Supposed to be Here” – which held the record for the longest running #1 R & B single. After 14 weeks at the top of the charts, Deborah earned a Billboard Music Award nomination for R & B Single of the Year, an NAACP Image Award nomination, A Soul Train Award, A Lady of Soul Award and 3 Juno Awards including a Best Female Vocalist Juno nomination. She was nominated for a World Music Award in 2010 for the song Leave The World Behind.

The Canadian born star has an impressive list of #1 Billboard hit records, including thirteen #1 songs on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play chart.

Deborah has been recognized for her longstanding commitment to the LGBT community. In January 2015, she received the Out Music Pillar Award. In 2014, she received the California State Senate Award and in 2007, she received The Civil Rights Award from the New York Senate for her efforts in the fight for Human Rights and Equality. The Harvey Milk Foundation at the 2015 Diversity Honors honored her for her efforts in the fight against HIV/AIDS in the LGBT community. On June 12, 2016, she was given the Liberty Bell and Proclamation in Philadelphia by Mayor James Kenney to proclaim June 12 as LGBTQ Philadelphia Pride Parade and Festival Day.
