Her first single “Only In My Dreams” went right to the top of the charts and around the world.
Following were several more top five hits and the #1 single “Foolish Beat”. Her debut album “Out of the Blue” sold over five million copies.

“Gibson’s vampish performance as Bowles – is certainly her most ambitious undertaking to date. She belts with gritty gusto, dances with verve and self-possessed ease, and quickly charms the pants off the audience with the focused bouyance she brings to a precocious, complex and ever-present character.” (Chuck Taylor, Billboard Magazine)
