One of the great voices in R&B will perform at the 2022 Chase in Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum R & B/Pop recording artist and actress Deborah Cox.
In 2016, she took on the iconic role of Rachel Marron in the Broadway musical of the hit film “The Bodyguard.” The role was made famous by the legendary Whitney Houston, and features hit “I Will Always Love You.”
Cox was friends with Houston, and the two recorded the song, “Same Cast, Different Script.” Above, Cox talks about the role and her relationship with Houston on the Wendy Williams Show.
If you want to catch Cox live, she will join a talented cast of entertainers on April 9 at The Chase at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Tickets and information can be found at www.daphealth.org/thechase
Below is the video with Houston and Cox.
At the closing ceremony of Worldpride, Cox sang, “I Will Always Love You.”
Cox began performing in television commercials when she was 12, and then she was a backup singer for fellow Canadian Celine Dion.
When she was 20, she moved to Los Angeles, and she was signed to Arista Records by Clive Davis. Her biggest hit was “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here,” from her second album. It would peak at No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
The third song from that album, “We Can’t Be Friends,” is a duet with R.L, and hit No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100, and her second No. 1 on the Billboard Hot R&B and Hip Hop chart.
