Kiley Dean (born April 12, 1982) is an American contemporary R&B singer. Dean was born and raised in a small town in Arkansas. When she was about 7 years old, her family decided to move to Orlando. She grew up singing in school and church, which led her to singing back-up for Britney Spears' tours, "…Baby One More Time Tour" and "Oops!... I Did It Again World Tour".

In 2002 she was signed to Timbaland's short-lived Beat Club Records, releasing two singles before her Timbaland-produced debut, Simple Girl, was shelved. In 2005, she set work on her second album under the name 'Blue Eyes' and released a single "Lookin' For Love" to radio. Her second studio album Changes was set to be released in 2006, preceded by the single "Who I Am," which was sent out to radio.

The following year, she signed with Mathew Knowles' Music World Entertainment label in 2007.[1] She was set to release her album "Changes" on the label, but left soon after six months.[2]

In 2008, she joined pop singer Madonna on her Sticky & Sweet Tour as a backup vocalist, replacing Madonna's long-time backing singer Donna DeLory, who was pregnant at the time and unable to tour.

In 2010, she released her album "Changes" digitally on the ReverbNation store for a limited time.[3][4] Later that year, she recorded a couple of remixes which was made available on YouTube and her Soundcloud accounts.[5]

She joined the New Kids On The Block and Matthew Morrison tours in 2011, singing backup for them.

As of 2012, she's currently singing backup for Madonna on her MDNA Tour.[6]
