Deborah Ann “Debbie” Harry is an American singer-songwriter and actress, best known as the lead singer of the new wave and punk rock band Blondie. She is sometimes considered the first rapper to chart at number one in the United States due to her work on “Rapture”. She recorded several worldwide number one singles with Blondie during the 1970s and 1980s. In a 2011 interview, Harry said that “After witnessing Elton John and his tireless efforts against HIV/AIDS”, she had been inspired to put philanthropy as her top priority. She said, “These things are important to my life now. I have the privilege of being able to get involved, so I do. I applaud people like Elton John, who have used their position to do so much good. “Some of Harry’s preferred charities include those devoted to fighting cancer and endometriosis.
