  Debby Boone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Born in Hackensack, New Jersey, she is the daughter of a famous singer, 1950s icon Pat Boone, and later added to her musical relations by marrying Gabriel Ferrer, brother of actor Miguel Ferrer and son of Rosemary Clooney and Jose Ferrer.
When asked who "lit up her life," Debby said she was singing about God, but the popularity of her first hit grew to be an annoyance.
In 2005 Boone released a new album on the Concord label, "Reflections of Rosemary." The CD is a tribute to her late mother-in-law.

 Debby Boone | Bio
Debby Boone's first Concord Records release, Reflections of Rosemary, is an intimate musical portrait of her mother-in-law, the legendary singer Rosemary Clooney.
Boone movingly details why she included each song on the CD, from Clooney's respect for Frank Sinatra ("In The Wee Small House of the Morning"), to a song the family agreed expressed their feelings for Rosemary and her home, fondly referred to as "The Roxbury House" (Randy Newman's haunting and deceptively simple "I'll Be Home").
Boone tips her hat to fate when she performs "It Might As Well Be Spring," a song from the movie "State Fair." The screen version of the musical starred her father, Pat Boone, and was directed by her future father-in-law, Jose Ferrer.
