Gaynor Sullivan better known as Bonnie Tyler, has carved an indelible mark in the music industry with her distinctive husky voice and powerful performances. Born on June 8, 1951, in Skewen, Neath, Wales, Tyler’s journey from a humble background to international stardom is a testament to her talent, resilience, and passion for music.

Early Life

Her father, Glyndŵr Hopkins, worked as a coal miner and served in the Second World War, while her mother, Elsie Hopkins, was a former homemaker. Growing up in a four-bedroom council house with three sisters and two brothers, Tyler’s exposure to music was diverse, thanks to her siblings’ varied tastes, ranging from Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra to the Beatles.

Tyler’s first public performance took place in a chapel, where she sang the Anglican hymn “All Things Bright and Beautiful” as a child, foreshadowing the remarkable musical journey that lay ahead.

Career

Tyler’s journey to fame started in April 1969 when her aunt put her in a local talent competition. Even though she lost to an accordionist, the experience made her want to sing even more. Before starting her band, Imagination, she supported Bobby Wayne & and the Dixies as a supporting vocalist. In order to distinguish herself from Welsh folk singer Mary Hopkin, she changed her name to Sherene Davis.

The publication of Bonnie Tyler’s 1977 album “The World Starts Tonight” marked her breakthrough. Her 1977 breakthrough song “It’s a Heartache,” which peaked at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number four on the UK Singles Chart, was made possible by the strong reception her singles “More Than a Lover” and “Lost in France” received.

Tyler and producer and composer Jim Steinman worked together in the 1980s, creating several classic singles, including “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “Holding Out for a Hero.” Her incredible voice were highlighted in these songs, which catapulted her to global acclaim.

Tyler’s songs, like “Bitterblue,” which was created by Dieter Bohlen, kept him popular throughout the 1990s, especially in continental Europe. She collaborated with vocalist Kareen Antonn on a new recording of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” in 2003, which went on to become extremely popular in France.

Tyler sang “Believe in Me,” a song from her album “Rocks and Honey,” to represent the United Kingdom in the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest. Her continued brilliance and variety were showcased in the albums “Between the Earth and the Stars” (2019) and “The Best Is Yet to Come” (2021) which were released in the following years.

She has received three Grammy Award nominations and three Brit Award nominations, including two for British Female Solo Artist. In 2022, she was awarded an MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for her significant services to music.
