Growing up in Long Island, Deborah began performing with her sisters in Community Theatre at the age of five. At age five she wrote her first composition. By age eight she was performing as part of the children's chorus at the Metropolitan Opera House in NYC with artists such as Placido Domingo. By the time she was twelve years old she was already a professional Broadway actress pursuing a recording career. The dream was realized by sixteen, when Deborah was signed to Atlantic Records. Her first single "Only In My Dreams" went right to the top of the charts around the world.
Following were several more top five hits and the #1 single "Foolish Beat". Her debut album "Out of the Blue" sold over five million copies. With this, Deborah established herself as a household name and immediately confirmed that position with her triple platinum follow up #1 album "Electric Youth" and the #1 single "Lost In Your Eyes". Deborah’s recording legacy includes 1990's Gold album Anything Is Possible, 1993's Body Mind Soul, 1995's Think With Your Heart, 1997's Deborah and 2001's M.Y.O.B.
In 1992, Deborah returned to her theatrical roots by taking a star turn in the Broadway production of Les Miserables as “Eponine.” She broke box office records in the London West End production of Grease as “Sandy”, then took the stage in the U.S. Broadway Tours of Grease and Funny Girl playing “Rizzo” and “Fanny Brice” respectively. Deborah returned to Broadway as “Belle” in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, followed by her critically acclaimed performance as “Gypsy Rose Lee” to Betty Buckley’s “Mama Rose” in Gypsy at the Paper Mill Playhouse. In February 2000, Deborah starred as “The Narrator” in the national tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Deborah returned to Broadway in February 2003, for a 4 month stint as the "saucy, sexy Sally Bowles" at Studio 54 in "Cabaret".
"Gibson's vampish performance as Bowles - is certainly her most ambitious undertaking to date. She belts with gritty gusto, dances with verve and self-possessed ease, and quickly charms the pants off the audience with the focused buoyancy she brings to a precocious, complex and ever-present character." (Chuck Taylor, Billboard Magazine)
Adding to her accomplishments, Deborah is also composer and lyricist on her own Broadway musical, Skirts.
Deborah Gibson considers herself to be the traditional "All Around Entertainer", and continues to be a driving force in the entertainment industry.
