Deborah Cox for Canadian Music Hall of Fame induction

Toronto-raised singer, Deborah Cox, is feeling a sense of déjà vu with all the attention she is getting,Toronto Star reports.

According to the report, the singer whose powerhouse vocals on 1990s hits “Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here” and “Who Do U Love” made her part of R&B music royalty, is pushing through a press day to celebrate her upcoming induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.

Something about it has triggered a flashback, she pauses mid-stride to tell a group of makeup artists and handlers around her.

“This reminds me of the first album,” she says of a media blitz that made her a star.

“Child, it was like back-to-back-to-back.”

Cox will need to reacquaint herself with the flurry of activity that defined her rise to fame.

After a few years of laying low, she’s launching a comeback of sorts with a new album and other plans on the horizon.

Cox will set it all in motion at the Juno Awards, broadcast live on CBC from Toronto’s Budweiser Stage on May 15, where on top of being inducted she’ll deliver a live performance of the R&B hits and dance floor classics that built her name.

“I never in my wildest dreams would’ve thought that I would be in this place,” she says of the recognition.
