Debbie was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in North Miami Beach, Florida. A music aficionado from a young age, she was "discovered" at the age of 16 by producer Pretty Tony at a Miami record store where she was working. The first song Debbie recorded was "When I Hear Music," which she co-wrote with Pretty Tony. Released on the Jam Packed record label, the song has since become a staple in clubs and on radio station dance mix shows.
Her hits include "Lookout Weekend,” "I Wanna Work It Out,” "There's A Party Going On,” "I Wanna Dance."
