Recognised for her distinctive raspy voice, Bonnie Tyler’s performing career began in 1969 after she entered a talent competition at the local rugby club in her hometown of Skewen.
She has released seventeen studio albums and is recognised as one of Wales’ best-known recording artists. She cites Tina Turner and Janis Joplin as her greatest influences.
With her career-defining 1983 single Total Eclipse of the Heart, Tyler became the first and only Welsh artist to score a no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She was also the only female soloist to score a UK no. 1 that year. The song features on her Grammy-nominated album, Faster Than the Speed of Night.
In the 80s, Tyler recorded several songs for blockbuster movie soundtracks, including Holding Out for a Hero - From "Footloose" Soundtrack and the Grammy-nominated Here She Comes - From "Metropolis" Soundtrack.
In 2013, Tyler represented the UK at Eurovision with Believe in Me from her critically acclaimed album Rocks and Honey. She recently celebrated her 50th year as a seasoned international performer with the release of Between the Earth and the Stars, featuring guest vocals from Rod Stewart, Cliff Richard and Status Quo's Francis Rossi.
Tyler is also a passionate philanthropist, having backed charities that support the homeless, animal rights and the welfare of children. She is an ambassador of Bobath Children’s Therapy Centre and Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital in Wales.
