Deborah Cox spent her childhood in Scarborough, Toronto, where she went to John XXIII Catholic Elementary School, after which she attended Earl Haig Secondary School. When she was 12 years old, she began performing on various TV commercials, as well as in a number of talent shows, such as “Tiny Talent Time”. During high school, she began singing in local nightclubs, and parallel with that began songwriting. Soon after, she became a backup singer for Celine Dion until she decided to move to Los Angeles in 1994 to pursue her musical career.

Thus, Cox’s professional musical career began in 1995, when she was signed to a contract with Arista Records by Clive Davis. In no time, she released her debut self-titled studio album (1995), which immediately propelled her into the music scene, as it achieved both gold by RIAA and platinum status by MC, reaching No. 1 on the US Heatseekers, and No. 25 on the US R&B chart, which increased her net worth by a large degree. Two years later, she released the soundtrack “Things Just Ain’t The Same” for the film “Money Talks” (1997).

She continued to line up success with her next album “One Wish” (1998), which achieved gold status by MC, and platinum status by RIAA. The album also peaked at No. 1 on the US Heatseekers chart, and became her biggest-selling album to date. The single “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here” is the first on the album, and spent a record 14 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot R&B charts in the USA, and eight weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, adding a considerable amount to her net worth.

Cox’s third album came out in 2002 under the name “The Morning After”, while her next album “Destination Moon” was released five years later. Furthermore, in 2008 she established her own record label – the Deco Recording Group – and in the same year she recorded her next album entitled “The Promise”, which peaked at No. 14 on the US R&B Album Chart. Currently, she is working on her sixth album called “Work Of Art”, which will be released in 2016. Her net worth is certainly rising.

Thanks to her accomplishments in the music industry, Cox has won numerous awards including the Juno Award for Best R&B/Soul Recording in 1996 for “Deborah Cox”, Soul Train Award for Best R&B/Soul Single in 1998 for “Nobody’s Supposed To Be Here”, and she was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Engineered Album, Non Classical in 2008 for “Destination Moon”, etc.

Apart from her successful career as a musician, Deborah Cox is also recognized as an actress, starring in such film and TV titles as “Nash Bridges” (2000) playing Vanessa Swan, “Love Come Down” in the same year portraying Niko Rosen, and “Living It Up With Patti LaBelle” (2008), among others, all of which increased her net worth.
