Bonnie Tyler (born Gaynor Hopkins; 8 June 1951) is a Welsh singer. Born in Skewen, she spent seven years performing in pubs and clubs around South Wales before being signed to RCA Records in 1975. Tyler is known for her distinctive husky voice, resulting from an operation to remove vocal nodules in the mid-1970s. Her singing has been compared to Rod Stewart and Kim Carnes, and she has been referred to as the 'International First Lady of Rock.'

Tyler first achieved major chart success in the 1970s with "Lost in France" and "It's a Heartache." She achieved further chart success in the 1980s with the two hit singles "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "Holding Out for a Hero." Both "It's a Heartache" and "Total Eclipse of the Heart" are among the best-selling singles of all time, with sales in excess of six million. Her 1983 album Faster Than the Speed of Night debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, earning her a Guinness World Record for being the first female artist to do so. Her work has earned her two Grammy Award nominations and three Brit Award nominations, among other accolades.

Making a comeback in 2003, she released "Si demain..." with Kareen Antonn, which was a number one in France for ten weeks. Her latest album Rocks and Honey has had moderate success in Europe, with her single "Believe in Me" being used as the UK's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2013. Following the contest, Tyler received two Eurovision Song Contest Radio Awards for Best Song and Best Singer, making her the first UK representative to win the award.
