In 2003 starting in the spotlight at the age of nine, Tiffany Evans became the face of “Star Search.” Her powerful voice made her the Grand Champion in the junior singer division. Tiffany Evans is known for her phenomenal hit “Promise Ring” which featured Ciara, and her role as a young actress on Tyler Perry‘s movie “Diary of a Mad Black Woman.”
Evans is now back with her new EP “All of Me” showing the world that she is a woman, mother, wife, and artist. At 23, she wants to let her fans and listeners know that you can be successful and also be a great mother and an artist as well. Her album “All of Me” features great tracks including the hit single ‘On Sight’ ft Fetty Wap, available now on iTunes.
Caroline Senion from Mygirlsquad sat down with Evans as she talks about the Ep “All of Me” and what we can expect from her in the future.
Mygirlsquad: Being a mom has its own set of challenges, how do you deal with being a mom and managing your time as an artist?
Tiffany Evans: I had a little bit of time to focus of my career, because I became a mother at a very young age, but life is great. I had been very mature from my experience. Being an artist and being mother is hard if you don’t know how to manage you time, but the best thing I’ve learned from being a mother, an artist, building my career is time management. That’s how I try to maneuver.
MGS: Do your children, especially your first born have any idea that mommy is an artist, and would you support her going into this industry if she wanted to when she grows up?
TE: My first daughter Adalia who is she 3 years old sometimes she acts like she is five or six. She is very smart and vibrant I just found out she knows who Tiffany Evans is. She’ll be in my camera saying “It’s your girl Tiffany Evans!” It’s pretty cool. My youngest doesn’t know but my oldest daughter she knows. If she wanted to do what I’m doing now I would let her know it’s not easy. I would give her the best advice possible to make sure she knows the do’s and dont’s on this journey. I would definitely be there for her as much as possible.
MGS: ‘All of Me’ has shown us how free and comfortable you are with who you are now, does it represent the all grown up Tiffany Evans?
TE: It is all me. It represents who I am at this time. I’m a person who speaks on experiences in my life. Moments in my life like having experiences with love or problems with friends – I’m ready to get it out because I know it’s going to change. Life keeps moving and one day I will feel different so I might as well get it out now. “All of Me” is who I am right now, so I’m talking about it. I’m talking about being a mother, love and just being happy.
MGS: What do you want your listeners and fans get out of this album?
TE: “Growth” I want them to hear growth. See growth. I am a woman and that’s what I want them to see. This is a whole different ball game for me now. I’ve experienced some things as a woman and I have a lot to talk about and I want them to hear it.
MGS: How was it working with Chris Brown and Fetty Wap?
What inspired the collaborations?
TE: Well I didn’t actually get to work with Chris but I’ve done couple shows with him and he is a sweetheart. As you know all the girls love him, he’s very handsome. Originally going into the studio I was going do “Down in the DM.” Usher, Zain, and Chris did the remix and I said “I have to hold it down for the ladies.”
“It came out FLAWLESSLY.”
I was pregnant and I had received the record from a producer in Detroit. My friend Brittany said to me “You and Fetty are both dope and from up North,” and I said one day it might happen and she told me she knew someone. She connected us and I reached out to him saying I had this record “I would love for you to do it,” he went in the studio the same night and sent it back.
“He killed it! I could tell by the way he did the record he loved it.”
MGS: If there was one thing you could give back to women what would it be?
TE: “I would just love to inspire.”
I know that sometimes being a woman with dreams people set a limit for us and I just believe you can do anything that you pray about and if you focus. Also as a mother you can still pursue your dreams you might have to put in more work but that’s okay. So just to inspire women and let them know it is possible.
