Three time Grammy winner Debby Boone topped the charts for 10 weeks in 1977 with her monster hit “You Light Up My Life”. Fans once again had a chance to hear her do that song and many of her other hits at Boscov’s, the newest store in the Millcreek Mall.
Boone will be performing twice a day, at 2pm and 7pm through Saturday in the community auditorium inside Boscov’s. The store held its ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday.
Boone says she never expected the song to go anywhere. She said she was excited to fly to New York City to record the song but did not think anyone would ever hear it again.
She was wrong…. very wrong. The song was an immediate hit. and now she says she had to come up with an album to go with her hit. she says she compiled songs already in the can and songs she had done in the past. In 1978 she won Best New Artist of the Year.
