Tiffany Campbell-Dailey

1989 -

Tiffany Campbell-Dailey started singing gospel music solos at age six and has since that time sung in numerous high profile settings and venues in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. Additionally, three of her CDs made by the end of her teenage years have been best sellers.

Tiffany was born in Montreal, Canada, to Eric and Megzie Dailey. Her natural ability and ease in singing were discovered at age three and a half, and she was placed in Joy Bells, a children's gospel choir. By age five she was being featured as a soloist with the group and at age six, when she sang a solo in the Westmont SDA Church in Montreal, those who listened were both surprised and deeply moved with the power of her performance.

At that time the family moved to Toronto, Ontario, where Tiffany was formally recognized a year later by the SDA church there as one of the best gospel artists under the age of fourteen. At age ten she received an appreciation award from that church and a year later, the Heritage Singers of Toronto gave her an award for a program in which she had participated.

At age ten she gave her first formal concert and was a featured singer on KLASS, a radio station in Jamaica and on gospel radio station CIUT in Toronto. A year later in its fall season The Quiet Hour used her to provide gospel music in three of its Windows of Hope series. The following spring they again featured her in that same series.

All through her teen years, Tiffany sang at evangelistic meetings such as It is Written; fundraising events; concerts; and numerous social events, including banquets, weddings, scholarship programs, and other functions. A highlight in those appearances was her singing before the Sabbath morning sermon in the Sky Dome during the 2000 General Conference Session in Toronto, Canada, to a live congregation of 60,000 and a worldwide television audience of millions.

In response to her singing on that occasion a writer in a subsequent issue of the Review and Herald, the primary church publication, reported " and when eleven-year-old Tiffany Campbell-Dailey sang, we thought we heard an angel sing." In the following week, Tiffany was invited to sing before the main speaker at a prayer breakfast at which over 200 delegates from Great Britain were in attendance.

In December 2000 her first CD, Changed, was released by Chapel Records. Two additional CDs have since been released, Heaven's Gate and My Provider. The appearances at the GC session, which introduced her to the world church, and the success of her first CD also led to an invitation from the Voice of Prophecy to participate in a Family Reunion Concert in Fort Worth, Texas, in March 2001 and to later appearances on 3ABN.
