NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Both 80's pop star-turned-Broadway-star Debbie Gibson and 2003 American Idol singer Kimberley Locke will be singing with recording artist Sir Ivan on his next album "I AM PEACEMAN - II", which will primarily consist of original songs with a theme of universal love and several remakes of iconic songs from the 60s.
Sir Ivan and Debbie Gibson, who's appearing on the new season of NBC's Celebrity Apprentice, will be working on their collaborative single in the spring of 2012. Kimberley Locke has already met with Sir Ivan to begin working out plans for their duet.
Debbie Gibson became the "youngest artist ever to write, produce and perform a No.1 single on the Billboard Hot 100", with her song Foolish Beat back in 1987, off her triple-platinum debut Out Of The Blue album, which had a total of four singles reaching the Top 5 in the Billboard Top 100. Her second album, Electric Youth, was released a year later and spent five weeks at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 Album Chart.
Kimberley Locke has enjoyed her share of chart success as well, racking up six solo A/C Top 10 hits, with three of her singles hitting #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart, all following her 2003 success on American Idol.
Sir Ivan recently released an updated version of The Grass Roots 60s hit "Live For Today", the latest single off his debut album "I Am Peaceman" on Peaceman Music, which became an official top ten hit in the UK at #7 on Music Week's Upfront Club Chart. The song's video, directed by Grammy Award winning music video director, Rudi Dolezal, has exploded on YouTube, with close to 2 million views.
Sir Ivan will be travelling to Los Angeles in December to record "La La Land," the first of the three original new songs he co-wrote with songwriter and producer team Josh Skinner & Russell Ali, the pair behind much of Locke's musical success. The two much-anticipated separate duets with Debbie Gibson and Kimberley Locke will add a whole new dimension to Sir Ivan's musical repertoire.
All of Sir Ivan's music is distributed digitally through TuneCore on iTunes and physically through Amazon.com, with exclusive remixes available on Beatport.
