Biography

Deborah Cox (born July 13, 1974 in Toronto) is a Canadian Pop/House/R&B/Soul singer-songwriter and actress. Her 1998 song “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here” held the record for longest-running number one single on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart (14 weeks) for nearly eight years.
She has achieved 11 number-one hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart.
Deborah Cox is often cited as Canada’s top R&B artist.

She began singing for TV commercials at age 12, and entered various talent shows with the help of her mother. She performed in nightclubs, and began to write music around the same time. Cox entered the music industry in the early 1990s, performing as a backup vocalist for Celine Dion for six months.

In 1995, label executive Clive Davis signed Cox to Arista Records, and she released her self-titled debut album the same year.
After middling success, Cox released a non-album single for the soundtrack to the 1997 movie “Money Talks”, titled “Things Just Ain’t The Same”. A dance mix of that song topped the U.S. dance charts and was included on her second album, “One Wish” in 1998. The first single from that album, “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here”, spent 14 weeks at #1 on the Hot R&B charts in the USA, as well as eight consecutive weeks at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album went platinum, becoming Cox’s biggest-selling album to date.

    Deborah is going to provide the singing vocals of Whitney Houston in the movie of her lifestory. Deborah sounds very different but i'm sure she can handle the material, it's gonna be weird to hear her voice coming out of (the) Whitney (character) tho.

    ...if people would start to tag Nobody's Supposed To Be Here: Dance Radio Mix correctly it would be in the TOP5 of Deborah Cox here --- Nobody's Supposed To Be Here: Dance Radio Mix --- or -- Nobody's Supposed To Be Here: Hex Hector's Club Mix -- or just -- Nobody's Supposed To Be Here -- for the SLOW version...
