Tiffany (singer)

Tiffany Renee Darwish (born October 2, 1971), better known in the music world as Tiffany, is a singer who kept a competition during the late 1980s with Deborah 'Debbie' Gibson for the title of Pop Queen. Tiffany is a native of Oklahoma. Some say she was born in Norwich, California[?], and that her last name is Darwisch and not Darwish. She is of Lebanese descent. Officially, thru, her birthplace is Oklahoma and her last name Darwish.

Tiffany did grow up in Norwich, where she had to go thru her parent's divorce at a very young age. When Tiffany was four years old, she learned the letters of a song named Delta Down, and she started singing that song everywhere she went to. With this song, she discovered she liked singing in front of people.

In 1977, Tiffany's mom married a guy named Dan Williams[?], and in 1979, Tiffany's sister Falicia Williams[?] was born.

In 1981, Tiffany made her first professional singing show, with a country music band at a country and western spot. She passed a hat along the crowd afterward, and collected 235 dollars in what would be her first career earning.

Tiffany used to sing at a Los Angeles club named El Palomino when she was discovered by Hoyt Axton[?] and his wife Mae Axton[?], who took her (Mae) to sing in Nashville, where she performs at the Ralph Emery Show. In 1982 Tiffany tours several cities in Alaska, earning 3,000 dollars for the tour. Also that year, she was an opening act for Jerry Lee Lewis and for George Jones.

In 1983, Tiffany's other sister, Cheressa Williams[?], is born. Ronald Kent Surut[?] became her manager that year.

Finally, in 1984, she was signed to a recording contract by George Tobin[?], who heard a demo tape she recorded and liked it. 1984, however, was a year of controversy for the singer. There was a release of a single by a singer named Tiffany that year, and she denies ever having anything to do with that single. The song, Remembering Love, was released in Canada, but not in the United States. As if that were nothing, a messy divorce between her mom and her stepfather occurred, when he was allegedly caught peeping on her. He mantains tha he was not trying to look at her in a lewd way, just making sure Tiffany did her breathing excersises.

In 1985 Tiffany appeared at the Star Search[?] show with Ed McMahon[?], but she came in second place that year. In 1986, she signs a contract that gives Tobin total control over her career. Then, she went into the studio to record her first album, and a contract was signed with MCA. In 1987 the self titled album, Tiffany, was released and she embarked on a mall tour to promote it. She visited every mall in the United States during her tour and her song I Think We're Alone Now became a number 1 hit on the Billboard chart, propelling Tiffany to international stardom. Soon, she was on the covers of many teen magazines, including Tiger Beat, Teen Beat[?] and many others, and visiting multiple television shows on MTV, Fox,etc. In '87 also, she cast a little known group by the name of The New Kids On The Block[?] to be the starting act on her concerts. She was signed to do a voice over of Judy Jetson in a movie about The Jetsons in 1989, but not before another hit following I Think to the top in 1988: Her song Could've been alo made it to the top of the Billboard charts. Another one of her hits was Promises made (promises broken).

In '89 also, she bought a mansion that used to belong to action movie star Chuck Norris.

Tiffany in the 1990s was another victim of the Rap evolution, and her album sales went down considerably. In 1992, she married make up artist Bulmaro Garcia[?] and in September 17 of that year she gave birth to Elijah Garcia[?]. In 1995, she moved to Nashville, and in 2002, she was the subject of an E! True Hollywood Story[?] television show. She is currently trying to make a comeback and she is on tour. She also had a greatest hits album released in Singapore and three in Japan, and she posed naked for Playboy magazine.
