Tapps is a Canadian Eurodisco/Hi-NRG musical group formed and based in Toronto in 1983. The group's original line-up consisted of Allan Coelho, Tony DaCosta and Paul Silva. In the midst of composing their debut single which was to become "My Forbidden Lover", Silva exited the group due to severe medical complications. The name is an acronym composed of the initials of their first names: Tony Allan Paul, and then pluralized as Tapps. The original lead singer of the act was Toronto-based vocalist Barbara Doust, who never appeared live with the act. Candy Berthiaume, recommended by a club manager to Coelho, was then inserted as the group's longest tenured lead vocalist. Doust's vocal graces the original version of "Lover" and "Burning With Fire", with Bethiaume's vocal the centrepoint of the version featured on the group's debut Turn It On LP.
