Profile Bio Text
Tiffany Renee Darwish (born October 2, 1971), known popularly as Tiffany, is an American singer and former teen icon. She is most notable for her 1987 remake of "I Think We're Alone Now", originally recorded by Tommy James and the Shondells in 1967. Released as the second single from her eponymous album, Tiffany, the song quickly became a teen anthem. Thanks to an original mall tour, "The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87", Tiffany found commercial success; both the single and the album peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200 charts, respectively. The singles, "Could've Been" and "I Saw Him Standing There", a feminine cover version of The Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There", followed soon after, with the former also claiming the number one position on the Billboard Hot 100.
Although Tiffany's second album, Hold an Old Friend's Hand managed to chart in 1988, it failed to replicate the success of her debut album. The 1990s saw two additional releases, 1990's New Inside and the Asia-exclusive Dreams Never Die, both of which failed to rekindle substantial interest. Tiffany returned in 2001 with her first album in six years, The Color of Silence. While the album received some minor critical success, it failed to achieve any significant standing. Since then, Tiffany recorded four additional full-length albums, including an album of 80s cover songs, focusing on a variety of genres including country and dance, and she continues to tour. Outside of music, Tiffany posed nude in Playboy and guest-starred in several television shows, including Hit Me, Baby, One More Time, Celebrity Fit Club and Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling, and the movies Necrosis and Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, the latter co-starring fellow 80s teen idol and musical rival, Debbie Gibson.
Tiffany was born in 1971, to parents James Robert Darwish (of Lebanese and Syrian descent) and Janie Wilson (of mostly Irish and some distant Cherokee descent). Her parents divorced when she was very young. She grew up in Norwalk, California.
Tiffany began singing around 1975, when she was four years old, and learned the words to the song "Delta Dawn". After the break up of her family she moved in with her father, rebelling against his strict Baptist parenting. While attending Leffingwell Christian High School, she and a group of friends began doing bad things which she acknowledged on Celebrity Ghost Stories in 2012.
Early singing careerIn 1981, Tiffany debuted with country music singer Jack Reeves at a country and western spot called Narods in Chino, California. She passed a hat along the crowd afterward, and collected $235 in what would be her first career earnings.
Tiffany was singing at the Palomino Club (North Hollywood) when she was discovered by Hoyt Axton and his mother Mae Axton. Mae took her to sing in Nashville, Tennessee, where she performed at the Ralph Emery Show, singing Juice Newton's "Queen of Hearts" and Tammy Wynette's "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad".
In 1982, Tiffany toured several cities in Alaska. Also that year, she performed on the same bill as Jerry Lee Lewis and George Jones. At that time, she was managed by George Tobin. In 1983, Ronald Kent Surut became her manager.
Recording contract and fameIn 1984, Tiffany was signed to a recording contract by George Tobin who heard a demo tape she recorded.
In 1985, Tiffany appeared on Star Search with Ed McMahon, where she finished second place overall.
In 1986, Tiffany signed a contract that gave Tobin total control over her career. She recorded her first studio album, and was signed to a MCA contract. Tiffany's eponymous album, Tiffany, was released in 1987. The first single titled "Danny" failed to chart. Following the failure of "Danny", Tiffany went on a nationwide tour titled "The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87". The tour kicked off at the Bergen Mall in Paramus, New Jersey. Her second single, a cover of Tommy James & the Shondells' hit, "I Think We're Alone Now", became a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
Soon she was vying with fellow pop star Debbie Gibson for space on the covers of teen magazines, including Tiger Beat, and Teen Beat, as well as on television shows on MTV. Her ballad "Could've Been" also peaked at the number one spot on the Billboard charts in February 1988. Tiffany's modified version of the Beatles "I Saw Her Standing There", retitled ""I Saw Him Standing There", peaked at the number seven position on Hot 100. "Feelings of Forever" also saw chart success from the over 4.1 million selling debut. Tiffany also set a record for the youngest female artist to top the Billboard charts with a debut album. Later that year, she toured with New Kids on the Block as the opening act for her concert tour.
