Gibson became really famous when this song took off, but her life wasn't all that glamorous. A junior in high school (public school: Calhoun High in Merrick, Long Island), she spent 3-4 nights every week performing at clubs, often flying back home for classes - she didn't have a tutor. By the time she graduated, the Out Of The Blue
album had sold over two million copies and delivered three other big hits: the title track
, "Shake Your Love," and the #1 "Foolish Beat
." Her next album, Electric Youth
, went to #1 in America and contained another #1 single, "Lost In Your Eyes
." In the '90s, her music fell out of favor but she got her star turn on the stage, starring in a number of popular musicals.
