Former `80s teen pop sensation Debbie Gibson, now 40, recorded bookend singles with Mr. Big singer Eric Martin. The singles, Martin’s “Mr. Vocalist 3” and her “Ms. Vocalist” were released in Japan on each of their new CDs, according to gibson.com. Another new Gibson single, “I Love You,” is currently No. 1 in Japan. On her way to a promo visit to Japan, Gibson stopped off in Manila where she campaigned for greater support for the improvement of health and education for the children of that nation, reports Philstar. She is a spokesperson for Children International, a non-governmental Filipino organization that is helping more than 78,000 children in Manila and the surrounding areas.
