LeAnn Rimes – You Light Up My Life

“You Light Up My Life” is a ballad written by Joseph “Joe” Brooks, and originally recorded by Kasey Cisyk for the soundtrack album to the 1977 film of the same name. The best-known version of the song is a cover by Debby Boone. LeAnn Rimes released her version as a single in 1997, 20 years after Boone’s version was released and on the same record label (Curb Records). Her version fared modestly by comparison to the original at radio (No. 34 Pop, No. 48 Country). However, her single was certified gold and was the title track to her No. 1 pop and country album, You Light Up My Life: Inspirational Songs.
