Bonnie Tyler

Bonnie Tyler was born in Skewen, near Swansea. She has had a hugely successful career as a singer, since her first hit “Lost In France” in 1976. She is instantly recognisable on record due to her raspy vocal style. “It’s a Heartache” in 1977 made her an international star, reaching number 3 in the US single chart. In 1983 she recorded the album “Faster Than the Speed of Night” which entered the UK album chart at No.1, making her a Guinness Record holder as the first ever British female solo artist to have an album enter the UK chart at no. 1. From that album her biggest hit “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” reached number 1 in the UK, USA, France and Australia. A multi award winner, Bonnie tours all over the world, and is enormously successful wherever she performs and has sold millions of albums worldwide. She still lives in Mumbles.
