"Crossover artist" has primarily been used to describe a R&B musician that has been able to have success on the Pop charts. But when you call Debby Holiday a crossover artist, it refers to a Rock singer crossing over into the Dance genre of music.

Debby Holiday's success in music may be defined by her numerous Billboard Top 20 Dance hits like "Dive," "Half A Mile Away," "Joyful Sound," "Party Round the World," "Never Give Up" and several more, but Debby's voice is rooted in Rock and Roll. Her's is a voice that has provided her opportunities to share the stage with Rock icons like Joe Walsh, John Waite, Rod Stewart and Kiss. While Dance music and Rock music may seem like miles apart to many, for Debby Holiday their similarities are quite evident. "I think where the similarities are, at least in my mind, are in the passion", says Debby. "It's all very passionate music."
