Deborah Cox Set To Appear On ‘UNSUNG’ On TV One

March 14, 2018

In the late 90s, Deborah Cox became a worldwide star when her unforgettable ballad “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here” shot straight to #1 on the R&B charts and dominated that spot for a record-breaking 14 weeks.

A singer and songwriter groomed by the legendary Clive Davis (left), Deborah Cox became known for tender R&B songs like “Sentimental” and her duet with R.L. of Next, “We Can’t Be Friends”. And while rising on the R&B side, she was also burning up the dance-floor with infectious remixes to her R&B jams and original dance tracks like “Absolutely Not”, leading to 13 #1 Dance hits. Deborah is also an accomplished stage actor staring in musicals Aida, Jekyll & Hyde and The Bodyguard. But long before dominating the charts or the stage, Deborah’s journey began in Toronto, Canada, where despite her reputation as a top singer, she was rejected by every major record label in the country. A middle child to Guyanese parents, Deborah struggled with insecurities growing up, from bullying in school, to lingering questions about her biological father. And years later, after launching a successful singing career, she found herself torn between plans to start a family and pressure from within the music industry to focus on the music.
