Debbie Gibson from "The Celebrity Apprentice 2012" is one of the celebrity contestants in Season 5 of the NBC reality competition series.

For more than 25 years, Debbie Gibson has proven she's an entertainer of immeasurable talent. From singer, songwriter and musician to actress and dancer, she embodies what it truly means to be an entertainer.

Gibson exploded on the pop music scene at the tender age of 16. A music prodigy, she quickly became the youngest person ever to write, produce and perform a No. 1 single, ("Foolish Beat"), a record she still holds today in the Guinness Book of World Records. To date, Gibson has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide.

After conquering the pop world, she set her sights on the theater. Gibson took a star turn in the Broadway production of "Les Miserables" as Eponine. She broke box office records in the London West End production of "Grease" as Sandy and then took the stage in the U.S. Broadway tours of "Grease" and "Funny Girl" playing Rizzo and Fanny Brice. Gibson also wowed critics as Belle in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast," Gypsy Rose Lee in "Gypsy," The Narrator in the national tour of "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," Cinderella in the national production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella" with Eartha Kitt, Velma Kelly in "Chicago" and Sally Bowles in the Broadway revival of "Cabaret."

Continuing to dazzle with entertainment magic, Gibson bridged the gap between pop music and Broadway with her one-woman show "Pop Goes Broadway." Critics agreed it was "the best show Atlantic City has seen in quite some time ... it's totally entertaining," during her three-week engagement in May 2008 at The Concert Venue at Harrah's. Phil Roura of the New York Daily News said, "She has mastered her craft to the point where she just doesn't perform a song — she embraces it and delivers it with her own special stamp of approval."

To fulfill her passion of mentoring and fostering young performers and songwriters, Gibson created "Debbie Gibson's Electric Youth," a series of performing arts camps and music boot camps. In addition, she formed the "Gibson Girl Foundation," a non-profit organization that awards scholarships and musical educational opportunities to underprivileged children who display talent and have a desire to participate in performing arts programs.

In 2010, Gibson made her debut in the world of orchestration. She collaborated on both the score and the powerful closing credits song, "Rise," for Dr. Rutledge's documentary, "3 Billion and Counting," about Malaria prevention in third world countries. Gibson guest starred in "Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy" at MGM/Foxwoods, and the "Original Pop Princess" also released a new album, "Ms. Vocalist," from Sony Japan that was Top 10 on the Billboard charts with the first single, "I Love You," hitting No. 1.

As the new spokesperson for Children International, Gibson spent time in early 2011 in impoverished villages in Manila. For more than 20 years, she has been a child sponsor and advocate. Gibson also starred with Tiffany in the SyFy hit "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid." Recently, she shot a cameo in the upcoming film "Rock of Ages," appeared in Katy Perry's hit music video for "Last Friday Night (TGIF)" and took a "Journey Though the '80s" on a sold out tour with Tiffany. Currently, Gibson's recording a new U.S. album. The first single "Rise," which was shortlisted for an Academy Award nomination, is now available on iTunes.
