In 1985, the life of a 14-year-old aspiring singer by the name of Tiffany Renee Darwish changed forever when she finished second place on Star Search with Ed McMahon.

She went on to sign a contract with MCA and recorded her first studio album, Tiffany, which was released in 1987. Unfortunately, her first single, "Danny," failed to chart, so her manager, George Tobin, sent her on a nationwide shopping mall tour called "The Beautiful You: Celebrating The Good Life Shopping Mall Tour '87."

Tiffany started to build up a fan base as the shows progressed, and by the time she released her second single, a cover of Tommy James & the Shondells' hit "I Think We're Alone Now," she was popular enough to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Tiffany became a household name, and forever cemented herself as one of the decade's icons.

People Magazine described her in the title of a story as "Tiffany, the Teenage Mall Flower Who Serenades the Shoppers of America." Her shot to stardom was further fueled by her second single, “Could've Been," and for the remainder of the 80s she held her position as a pop princess competing with the likes of Debbie Gibson. She's also to thank for giving New Kids on the Block the national exposure they needed by having them open up for her U.S leg of her concert tour.

She appeared on magazine covers, MTV programs, and even provided the voice of Judy Jetson on Jetsons: The Movie, which was released in 1990.  

But as new artists began to emerge, Tiffany's star power started to diminish in the early 90s. As people's musical tastes started to shift, the pop star's career started to suffer, and before long, she was forgottten.

So where has she been this whole time?
