This young lady has been living out her passion of singing since she was 5 years old. Her friends and family know her as Dav’rielle (pronounced Dah-vree-el) “Dee-Dee” Smith. Her fans and supporters know and love her as TIFANII SONGBIRD.
The years before and since has brought TIFANII a host of opportunities ranging from Showtime at the Apollo, BET’s 106 and Park, MTVs Diddy’s Making the Band 3, beating out 800 local hopefuls for the spot. Tiffany (now TIFANII) was unable to compete after injuring her hip during training, thus left the show.
She has also had a host of other performances at various venues and locations including being the musical highlight at the Southwestern Athletic Conference Championship (SWAC) games (2008); landing features on a host of mixtapes, which includes being one of two R&B artists on the otherwise hip-hop BET’s Spring Bling Mixtape. TIFANII has had the pleasure to be in the presence of mega producers like Brian Michael Cox, Swizz Beatz and a host of others and constantly recording new music for the new sound of TIFANII SONGBIRD!
Since then, TIFANII SONGBIRD has stayed focus to emerge on the scene as a Total Entertainment Industry Package acing the abilities to sing, dance, model, act and write her own music. With the soulful sound of a seasoned songstress, this young lady has performed many places and amongst some of the greats, young & old such as: Vivica Fox, Morris Chesnut, Clifton Davis, Clipse, Monique, Chris Brown, Jazmine Sullivan and starred in a theatrical play featuring Thelma (from Good Times) Howard Hewitt, Sammi and Dave Hollister.
Now 19, this young lady is majoring in Mass Communication at Norfolk State University and will surprise the music industry just like she did her opponents from “Making the Band”, viewers across the country and world, as well as fans and supporters.
She recently graced the stage of BET’s 106 and Park where many of her MTB3 supporters got reacquainted to only flood the social networking pages of TIFANII. Opening for Trey Songz will be a good highlight as she contines to record, perform and perfect her passion, this thing called singing. TIFANII has also been nominated for Best R&B Artist and Song of the Year this year so far.
