She broke out on the music scene in 1987, with great big hair and an even bigger voice. Taylor Dayne soared through her first single, "Tell It To My Heart", with the look of Madonna and a sound that was very much her own. The girl from Long Island, New York, opened that mouth, and a whole bunch of amazing spilled out. She had a voice that could not be denied. And she danced up a storm on the videos, usually with very pretty, half-clad boys.
She followed up with "Prove Your Love", another rousing Dance song. Live the last, the song made it to #7 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, fairly impressive for a new artist. The third single, "I'll Always Love You", was a power ballad, went to #3 on the chart, and played on the radio non-stop. Thankfully, it is an amazing performance.
In 1990, Taylor had her first #1 on the Pop charts, "Love Will Lead You Back". The girl flat-out sings her heart out, even if the hair is more tamed and she suddenly looked all California, not Long Island.
