2006 David Foster Star Search Runner Up Tiffany Desrosiers Hits the Dance Floor With a Club Version of the Diane Warren-Penned Bad English Classic 'When I See You Smile'
Among The Re-Mixers On Board Are The U.K.'s Future Freakz (Akon) and Klubjumpers (L'il Wayne, Michael Buble)

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- 23-year-old Canadian vocal sensation Tiffany Desrosiers, runner up in the 2006 David Foster Star Search Competition in British Columbia, is about to break big in the dance world with a hot club version of "When I See You Smile," the classic 1989 power ballad penned by Diane Warren and originally recorded by Bad English.
Remixes of the track are being created by an exciting batch of top remixers, including the U.K.'s Future Freakz (Akon) and Klubjumpers (L'il Wayne, Michael Buble); there will be five remixed versions in all. The original track was produced by engineer Sam Ryan of SOS Music in Vancouver, who also helmed Desrosiers' new independently released self-titled adult contemporary debut album. Ryan's credits include classical crossover group Destino and pop singer Brooke Nolan.
Released by Dauman Music and distributed by Federal Distribution in association with the Universal Music Group, "When I See You Smile" is, ironically enough, Jason Dauman's second dance chart success in a year with a singer named Tiffany. In 2009, 80s teen pop queen Tiffany returned to the charts with "Higher" and "Just Another Day," both released by Dauman Music.
"Jason has great success in dance music, and at first he presented me with a handful of original songs," says Desrosiers, a trained opera singer who began vocal lessons at age nine. "But we thought it might be cooler to launch with a remake of a song people were already familiar with but had never been done this way. I've always loved pop music, and we both felt that 'When I See You Smile' was a perfect fit, a great crossover song for me."
The versatile performer, who was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and moved to Langley, British Columbia at age 6, first came to prominence in her native country via The David Foster Star Search 2006, a fundraising initiative in support of families of children requiring organ donations. Desrosiers was runner-up in the Victoria region and subsequently invited by the Foster camp to sing "The Prayer" at the Victoria Independent Film Festival in 2007, and again in 2008 at "An Evening of Great Canadian Achievement" honoring Foster and presented by the C.H.I.L.D. Foundation.
Desrosiers is a frequent guest performer with Classical Nouveaux, a classical crossover group, which performs regularly throughout British Columbia. On February 19, as part of an official event of the 2010 Winter Olympics put on by the Olympic Committee, the ensemble will be opening for Jully Black and Alex Cuba at the Celebration Site of the Games in Surrey's Holland Park.
Desrosiers also performs with the Canadian classical crossover vocal group Il Voce.
Dauman says, "I expect Tiffany to appeal to a wide scope of formatted clubs and this club anthem blazer will precipitate a showering of enthusiasm! A charming vocal and a classic song makes for a great introductory to Tiffany's work."
