Debbi James is an African-American, French and Israeli singer, songwriter, and performer. She was born in France and resided there for two years until her mother decided to relocate back to Israel, which is where she spent most of her childhood. Debbi James is the daughter of the late great actor Steve James who played roles in major Cannon Films in the late 80s such as Delta Force and American Ninja. After her mom passed away, she decided at the age of 19 that she wanted to move to Los Angeles in order to pursue a musical career and continue her father’s legacy, despite not knowing any English.
Ever since arriving in Los Angeles, she has become fluent in English and has perfected her musical craft by working with reputable vocal coaches, recording with Grammy nominated engineers and producers, and performing at local and major venues.
In 2017, Debbi James appeared on X Factor Israel, and since then has performed with Rotem Cohen and opened for Enrique Iglesias. She collaborated with JOY Records during the HEVI Challenge in February 2018 on her hit “All In” and is set to release an EDM project in the summer of 2018.
