Bonnie Tyler

After signing a record deal with RCA in 1976, Bonnie Tyler's second single ''Lost in France'' peaked at number nine in the British charts, and stayed in the Germany top ten for over six months.
The following year she broke America when her top five UK hit single ''It's A Heartache'' also climbed into the Billboard charts and was certified gold.
She teamed up with producer Jim Steinman in 1983 and their album ''Faster Than The Speed Of Night'' received international recognition, containing the epic multi-platinum selling power ballad ''Total Eclipse Of The Heart''. Further success came in 1986 via the single ''Holding Out For A Hero'', from the soundtrack to the film Footloose.
Basing herself in Germany in the early 1990s, Tyler's 1991 album ''Bitterblue'' was certified four times platinum in Norway, and also topped the charts in Austria. In 1993, it was announced that her then latest album ''Silhouette In Red'' had already achieved a Gold Disc in Norway the day before it was officially released.
In 2004, Tyler was once again topping the charts when a dual-language duet of ''Total Eclipse'' with French singer Karan Antonn was released, and ''Si Demain (Turn Around)'' went straight to number one in Belgium, Poland and France, the later for twelve weeks.
In 2013, Tyler represented Britain in the Eurovision Song Contest and her entry ''Believe In Me'' scored the highest Eurovision-related chart entry in the UK's Top 100 Singles Chart. She also received two Eurovision Song Contest Radio Awards for Best Song and Best Singer, making her the first UK representative to receive such a honour.
