Deborah Cox

Her role as Niko Rosen in 'Love Come Down' (2000)
A native of Toronto, Deborah Cox began singing for TV commercials at age 12, also entering various talent shows with her mother's help. She performed in nightclubs as a teenager, and around this time, she also began to write her own material with the help of writer, producer, and future romantic interest Lascelles Stephens. Much like Whitney Houston, with whom she is often compared vocally as well, Cox was discovered by Arista Records president Clive Davis shortly after graduating from high school. Davis recruited some of the top names in R&B to provide Cox with material for her 1995 debut, including Babyface, Dallas Austin, and Keith Crouch, but Cox herself co-wrote her first hit single, "Sentimental," with Austin and bass player Colin Wolfe, along with three other tracks on the album. Deborah Cox, Vol. 2 followed in 1998, launching the R&B chart-topper "We Can't Be Friends."Source: icebergradio.com

So I place my heart under lock and key, to take some time to look after me. But when I turn around you're standing there...More Deborah Cox quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I think differently, I think it's about reaching everybody on every different plane and every different level, and if I could remix the song and do a dance remix, that's great. If I could do a classical version, that'll be great too. It's all just about expression.More Deborah Cox quotes [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
