Debbi Morgan's THE MONKEY ON MY BACK! to Benefit Negro Ensemble Company, 9/23
Debbi Morgan has come full circle where once again she is back on the show and playing the role that first earned her the most fan recognition ever, "Angie Hubbard" on the daytime drama, "All My Children". And 2009 turned out to be a year of applause and honors when Debbi snatched up a NAACP Award for the second time, this time for 'Best Actress' on "All My Children", the prestigious "Gracie Award", which recognizes the contributions made by women in television, and a third daytime "Emmy Award" nomination, this time for leading actress on "AMC".
"All My Children" finally came to an end after 41 years on the air. This ended the reign of Debbi Morgan's beloved character, "Angie ". But never too idle, Debbi then stepped into a new pair of shoes on the number one daytime drama, "The Young & The Restless" portraying. She was delighted to stretch her acting chops in a role that couldn't be further away from "earth mother Angie". Debbi brought much heart and creativity to this new role, but her tenure on Y & R was short lived. Because of the huge out cry of fans "All My Children" made a historical jump to be produced as a web series, and Debbi Morgan has once again excited viewers by bringing back the beloved character of "Angie Hubbard". Because of the huge success and the number one rating on both Hulu and Itunes, Oprah Winfrey's Own Network has also began airing the first forty shows of the new online "All My Children" throughout the summer.
It's been a long journey, but Morgan will be looking forward to the release of her personal memoir, "The Monkey on My Back!" which she began writing more than seven years ago. And the actress's Production Company, Dam Entertainment is working in conjunction with Goldline Productions to bring to reality TV "All About The Benjamin's", a family's arduous buT Loving and heartfelt journey in dealing with two young adult sons, one with Autism, and the other with Asperger's syndrome.
