LOS ANGELES — Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated, and 13-time Billboard #1 recording artist Deborah Cox is set to perform at Project Angel Food’s Circle of Angels Garden Party event on Sunday, March 31, at the Hollywood Hills home of Tim Robinson and Bob Cohen, announced Richard Ayoub, Executive Director of the organization. Josh Flagg and Bobby Boyd of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing are special guests.
Ayoub says, “We are thrilled that Ms. Cox was able to make room for us in her schedule for this year’s Garden Party, which is one of the ways we say thank you to our major supporters. Her acclaim as an artist and an advocate is renowned, and we are grateful for her commitment to the important work of Project Angel Food.”
Deborah adds, “Since early in my career I realized I wanted to use my voice for those who might not have a voice of their own. When a person is facing death and doesn’t have the means to even feed themselves, they can feel isolated, disenfranchised and alone. But, they are not invisible to Project Angel Food, which provides food, hope and dignity.”
Last year, Cox thrilled audiences at Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre, as part of the national tour of The Bodyguard, starring as Rachael Marron, the role originated by Whitney Houston in the film. Cox and Houston recorded together, releasing Same Script, Different Cast in 2000. In addition, Cox provided the vocals for the Lifetime Television biography Whitney, and her most recent album, I Will Always Love You, is a tribute to her friend and legend.
Deborah has recorded six award-winning and critically acclaimed albums and has written for and been recorded on numerous soundtracks. She has had 13 #1 Billboard songs, including her hit Nobody’s Supposed to be Here, which held the record for the longest running #1 R & B single, spending 14 weeks at the top of the charts. In addition to her impressive career as a recording artist, Deborah is an actress who has starred on Broadway in Aida, Jekyll and Hyde and the feature films A Good Man Is Hard to Find, Love Come Down and Love on Lay Away. Deborah has been recognized for her longstanding commitment to the LGBT community and for her efforts in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
