Deborah Gibson celebrates her career and promotes her elite performing arts camp, 'Deborah Gibson'S ELECTRIC YOUTH' with a handprint ceremony at Planet Hollywood Times Square, Monday December 29, 2008. Her handprints will later be displayed on the walls of a TBD Planet Hollywood.

Deborah "Debbie" Gibson - - recording artist and Broadway star. Originally from New York, Gibson has starred in many Broadway shows, including Les Miserables, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Gypsy, and Cabaret. After exploding on the pop music scene at the tender age of 16, she quickly became the youngest person ever to write, produce and perform a number one single, Foolish Beat, a record she still holds today in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Gibson's passion to mentor and foster young performers and songwriters led her to create "Deborah Gibson's Electric Youth," a series of performing arts camps and songwriting/recording intensives. Founded in July 2008, more than 120 kids from around the world attended the inaugural summer camp in Hollywood. Celebrity guests included Lorenzo Lamas, Wayne Brady, Jason Alexander and Marissa Winokur. Immediately following the summer camp, two songwriting intensives and recording boot camps were held resulting in Gibson co-producing 15 songs of master quality in 12 days.

Gibson brings her elite performing arts camp home to New York City. From Friday, December 26, through Wednesday, December 30, 2008 serious performers from around the world, ages 10 to 20, will attend "Deborah Gibson's Electric Youth" Winter Camp.
