Biography

Deborah Cox (born July 13, 1974 in Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian R&B/House singer-songwriter and actress.

Her 1998 song "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here" was tied with Mariah Carey's "We Belong Together" for having the longest-running number one single on Billboard's R&B 100, a record held for nearly eight years until Mary J. Blige's "Be Without You" notched a 15th week at number one in 2006. Cox has achieved eleven number-one hits on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play Chart. Cox has also worked with the German singer Xavier Naidoo since early 2001.

Cox entered the music industry as a backup vocalist for CĂ©line Dion, and after signing to Arista Records, released her self-titled debut album in 1995. The album introduced her to the world and set the stage for 1998's One Wish. The first single from that album, "Nobody's Supposed To Be Here", spent fourteen weeks at #1 on the top R&B 100 charts for the USA, as well as eight consecutive weeks at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her third album, The Morning After, was released in November 2002,under J Records. On February 17, 2004, she made her Broadway debut in the Elton John-Tim Rice musical Aida, returning to recording only to release a dance remix of "Easy As Life" as a single.

Cox also has been involved in a number of movies and/or soundtracks. In 2000, she played Niko Rosen in Love Come Down. In 2001, her hit-song "Absolutely Not" was featured in Dr. Dolittle 2. In 2005, in the movie Blood of a Champion she played the role of Sharon, and again in 2005, her voice was featured in the movie Hotel Rwanda in a song entitled "Nobody Cares".

Cox has performed her songs at "New Year's Eve" in Los Angeles on December 31, 2005 , and subsequently her comeback single "A House Is Not A Home" hit number one on Billboard's Dance/Club Play chart in January 2006. Later in the year, a new song entitled "Definition Of Love" was used in the movie Akeelah and the Bee, but was never released as a single.

Between 2005 and 2006 she has recorded a new album called Destination Moon as a tribute to jazz singer Dinah Washington. Destination Moon, her fourth studio album, was released on June 19th, 2007.

Cox's parents are of Afro-Guyanese decent, but she has never met her biological father. She is married to music producer Lascelles Stephens. They have two children, Isaiah (born July 1, 2003) and Sumayah (born June 29, 2006).
