October 2: Tiffany Darwish – AKA Tiffany – is 42-years-old today.

Tiffany Renee Darwish was born on October 2, 1971 and grew up in Norwalk, California. She began singing around 1975, when she was four years old, and learned the words to the song "Delta Dawn.”

In 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, who took her to sing in Nashville, Tennessee. Tiffany  performed on the Ralph Emery Show, singing Juice Newton's "Queen of Hearts" and Tammy Wynette's "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad.”

In 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.

Tiffany is best known 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 self-named album, Tiffany, the song quickly became a teen anthem. 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, Mega Piranha, and Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, the latter co-starring fellow 80s teen idol and musical rival, Debbie Gibson.
