Born in Hackensack, New Jersey, Boone's young life was full of music. Her father was singer and actor Pat Boone and her mother, Shirley Foley, was the daughter of popular country singer Red Foley. At the age of 14, Boone began touring with her three sisters and her father, then later with just her sisters as the Boones or the Boone Girls. Producer Mike Curb encouraged her to pursue a solo career and she struck gold with first solo effort, "You Light Up My Life," rising quickly to stardom with one of the most popular songs of the decade. Subsequent pop singles failed to make as big an impact and Boone eventually tried her hand at country music, finding success in the late's with albums like Midstream and Love Has No Reason.
