Bonnie Tyler (born Gaynor Hopkins on 8 June 1951) is a Welsh singer. Her first hit single, "Lost In France", reached the UK Top 10 in 1976 and she was nominated for Best British Female Newcomer at the 1977 Brit Awards. Soon after, Tyler underwent an operation to remove nodules from her vocal cords which left her with a distinctively husky voice. However, this did not affect her career and her 1977 single "It's a Heartache" became a hit in both Europe and North America.
In the 1980s, Tyler worked with rock music songwriter Jim Steinman, and she gained further international success with her number one hit "Total Eclipse of the Heart" in 1983. Steinman also wrote Tyler's last major British success, "Holding Out for a Hero", which was featured on the Footloose film soundtrack in 1984. Tyler was nominated for three Grammy Awards that year, and was twice nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Female Artist in 1984 and 1986.
In more recent years, Tyler has continued to have success in Continental Europe, and her 2003 single, "Si demain... (Turn Around)" (a duet with French singer Kareen Antonn), reached the top of the French charts for 10 weeks.
