8 Welsh singer

Gaynor Hopkins (born June 8, 1951) was born in Skewen, Neath, Wales. She is a Welsh singer known for her distinctive husky voice, which has become her signature. She is professionally known as Bonnie Tyler, emerged onto the music scene in the late 1970s. Tyler gained initial recognition with the release of her 1977 album "The World Starts Tonight", which featured standout tracks like "Lost in France" and "More Than a Lover". However, it was her single "It's a Heartache" from the same album that truly catapulted her to international fame, peaking at number four on the UK Singles Chart and reaching number three on the US Billboard Hot 100.

In the 1980s, Tyler's career soared to new heights when she collaborated with renowned songwriter and producer Jim Steinman. Together, they crafted some of her most iconic hits, including "Total Eclipse of the Heart", the lead single from her 1983 album "Faster Than the Speed of Night". Steinman's genius also produced another chart-topper for Tyler, "Holding Out for a Hero". Throughout the 1990s, Tyler continued to captivate audiences across mainland Europe with hits like "Bitterblue", crafted in collaboration with Dieter Bohlen.

Tyler's musical journey experienced a resurgence in the 2000s with notable endeavors such as her bilingual duet "Si demain... (Turn Around)" with Kareen Antonn, which dominated the French charts. This momentum carried into the 2010s with the release of "Rocks and Honey" in 2013, featuring the Eurovision Song Contest entry "Believe in Me", showcasing Tyler's enduring relevance in the music industry.

Continuing to evolve her sound, Tyler reunited with producer David Mackay for subsequent albums like "Between the Earth and the Stars" (2019) and "The Best Is Yet to Come" (2021), each contributing to her illustrious career. Tyler's contributions to music have garnered widespread acclaim, earning her three Grammy Award nominations, three Brit Award nominations, and in 2022, the prestigious MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours for her enduring services to the industry.
