Tiffany Bynoe (born Tiffany Williams) is a contemporary gospel singer with a background in ’90s urban music and an affection for modern pop & R&B production. Singing since shortly after she could talk, Williams grew up in Akron, Ohio, where her grandmother, a radio promoter, advised the young vocalist to take every opportunity to perform publicly. Having competed in Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater multiple times — winning three — and declined a record contract offer by age 16, the singer was already an experienced entertainer when she moved to New York City after finishing high school. There, she signed with Pendulum Records. Her debut album, Tene Williams, was released in 1993 under that moniker, and the single “Give Him a Love He Can Feel” hit the Billboard Hot 100 and various R&B and dance charts. Around that time, she married producer Kyle Bynoe and started a family, which led to a prolonged break from pursuing her own music career, if not from the industry entirely, and a relocation back to Akron. The family found renewed focus in ministry, with Kyle shifting from work in secular to religious music. In the meantime, Bynoe appeared as a guest or backing vocalist on the occasional gospel recording and founded a nonprofit called Gabby’s Heart, which advocates for families dealing with children’s heart conditions like her own daughter’s. In the 2010s, Bynoe returned to the studio with an objective to make music with positive messages, and released the ballad “Your Love Completes Me” in 2011 as Tene Williams, and “Blessed by the Best” in 2013 as Tiffany Bynoe. Preceded by the single “Seasons” and produced by her husband, her debut Tiffany Bynoe album was expected in 2016.
