Ladies of the '80s

Saturday, October 28

Debbie Gibson burst onto the pop music scene at 16, becoming the youngest artist to write, produce and perform a #1 single on Billboard's Hot 100 – a record she still holds! Her debut album Out of the Blue went triple platinum and her second album Electric Youth went double platinum, both spawning a flurry of hits. After selling more than 16 million albums, the multi-talented performer went on to star on Broadway. Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam are synonymous with '80s urban contemporary music, bringing Latin hip-hop and freestyle to the forefront of pop culture. In all, the group has enjoyed 6 top-selling album and 5 gold singles, selling over 20 million records worldwide. Grammy® award winner Jody Watley set the tone in dance music throughout the '80s and is recognized as one of the most prominent visionaries of her era. The Chicago native ranks 21st on Billboard magazine's list of top dance club artists of all time and her influence remains a key touchstone in popular music.
