Debby Boone

Bishop John Harvey Taylor and Canon Kathy O’Connor invite members of the diocesan community to the second annual Bishop’s Concert, featuring Grammy Award-winning singer, actor and author Debby Boone, on Friday, October 11 at the episcopal residence, located at 3435 E. California Boulevard in Pasadena.

Debby Boone is known for the 1977 hit “You Light Up My Life” (listen here), her 1980 country song “Are You On the Road to Lovin’ Me Again,” and albums of country music, contemporary Christian songs, and songs for children. In 2005 she released Reflections Of Rosemary, an album featuring music that her mother-in-law, Rosemary Clooney, performed as well as other songs that Boone felt reflected the woman her family knew. Boone also has appeared in many musical theater productions, television series and movies, and has written several children’s books illustrated by her husband, the Rev. Gabriel Ferrer, vicar of St. Martin’s Church, Winnetka.

Gates will be opened at 6 p.m. and refreshments will be served before the performance, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. Valet parking will be available. Tickets are $60 if reserved before Aug. 1; $75 thereafter. To reserve tickets, click here. Proceeds will support diocesan ministries.
