Pat isn't the only renowned singer in Debby's family. Debby says her mother-in-law, acclaimed singer Rosemary Clooney, was a big influence on the family. "It was miraculous the way she loved my kids. The way she lit up like a Christmas tree every time they walked in the room," she says. "Anybody that's ever had the experience of somebody delighting in you like that, it's miraculous."
To honor her mother-in-law, Debby has recorded a number of Rosemary's songs on an album called Reflections of Rosemary. "I chose songs that either she performed or had something to do with her," she says. "I tell my stories and I share her and myself because it's my life and it's very authentic."
