Win Bonnie Tyler's Rocks & Honey
Story by Jack Foley
WITH a career spanning four decades and a voice instantly identifiable the world over, Bonnie Tyler is the international first lady of rock.
Born in Skewen, Neath, South Wales, Tyler grew up listening to and being influenced by the legendary female artists of the day, such as Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.
Bonnie’s breakthrough hit was her second ever single Lost In France, which climbed to No.9 in the UK charts. The track was then released in Europe and became a huge hit, staying in the Top Ten in Germany for over six months.
The 80’s saw even greater success. A burgeoning collaboration with epic rock pioneer Jim Steinman garnered phenomenal international recognition with the album Faster Than The Speed Of Night and multi-platinum selling power ballad, Total Eclipse Of The Heart.
Continuing their working relationship, Holding Out For A Hero, from the soundtrack to the film Footloose, proved similarly popular.
Tyler was impacting the European market so much that in 2003 recorded a dual-language cover of Total Eclipse, with French artist Kareen Antonn titled Si Demain (Turn Around), which topped the charts in Belgium, Poland and France, the latter for 10 weeks.
Now, Bonnie is due to release her incredible new album Rocks and Honey on May 6, featuring the song Believe In Me, which was written by Desmond Child, Lauren Christy and Christopher Braide, and produced by David Huff. The track is Britain’s official entry for the forthcoming 2013 Eurovision Song Contest.
