Deborah Cox is a Canadian R&B singer-songwriter and actress. Her 1998 song "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here" held the record for longest-running number one single on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart (14 weeks), a record held for nearly eight years. She has achieved 12 number-one hits on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart. She is often cited as Canada's top R&B artist.

Deborah Cox was born in Toronto to parents of Afro-Guyanese descent, grew up in Scarborough, Toronto and attended John XXIII Catholic Elementary School and Earl Haig Secondary School. She began singing on TV commercials at age 12 and entered various talent shows with the help of her mother. She performed in nightclubs as a teenager, and she began to write music around the same time. Cox entered the music industry in the early 1990s, performing as a backup vocalist for Celine Dion for six months. After receiving many rejection letters from Canadian record labels that claimed their "quota" had been reached, Cox moved to Los Angeles in 1994 with producer and songwriting partner, Lascelles Stephens.

In 1995, label executive Clive Davis signed Cox to Arista Records, and she released her self-titled debut album the same year. After middling success, Cox released a non-album single for the soundtrack to the 1997 movie "Money Talks," titled "Things Just Ain't The Same." A dance mix of the song with a remix by Hex Hector topped the U.S. dance charts and was included on her second album, 1998's One Wish.

The first single from that album, "Nobody's Supposed to Be Here," spent 14 weeks at No. 1 on the Hot R&B charts in the USA, as well as eight consecutive weeks at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The album went platinum, becoming Cox's biggest-selling album to date. Cox then recorded a new song, "Absolutely Not," for the soundtrack to "Dr. Dolittle 2." Remixes of the song repeated the success of One Wish's singles on the dance charts, and the Hex Hector Chanel Mix of "Absolutely Not" was included on her third album. After One Wish, Cox appeared on the single "Same Script, Different Cast" by Whitney Houston from Whitney: The Greatest Hits.

In early 2008, Cox & Stephens created the Deco Recording Group, her very own independent label, which is distributed through Image Entertainment. Soon she started recording songs for a new album.

Her fifth R&B studio album, The Promise, was released on November 11, 2008. The first single "Did You Ever Love Me" was released to radio on August 26, 2008. Cox joined forces with Kenny Lattimore for the "Timeless Promise Tour" in July 2009.

In 2014, she was one of the performers at the opening ceremonies of WorldPride in Toronto, alongside Melissa Etheridge, Tom Robinson and Steve Grand.

Cox is reported to provide vocals for a 2015 Whitney Houston biopic, directed by Angela Basset.
