Bonnie’s first single, “My, My Honeycomb” got little more than local airplay. A second release flirted with hitlists for months until on 30 October 1976 “Lost in France” jumped into the U.K. charts and didn’t budge for ten weeks. The song became a European hit and made one of Bonnie’s dreams come true when she appeared on Top of the Pops.

Bonnie’s 1976 debut album The World Starts Tonight earned her critical acclaim, a solid reputation as a promising new artist and charted across Europe. But a single, “It’s a Heartache,” for an upcoming album really broke the sound barrier. The track took the pole position in a lot of European countries, and most importantly, landed at No. 3 on the benchmark Billboard Hot 100. The song, one of the biggest hits of 1978 even won gold on the American Country Music chart.

A couple of years later Bonnie’s career reached new heights with the release of “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” and put her in the history books as the only Welch artist to hit the number-one slot in the U.K. and the U.S. The album Faster Than the Speed of Night – containing “Total Eclipse … “, the title track and “Have You Ever Seen the Rain -- became the first album by a female artist to enter the U.K charts at number one, and it won two Grammy nominations in America.

All the while, Bonnie continued to do what she still loves best – performing on stage – at hundreds of sold-out venues around the world. The records kept on coming through the years, her studio albums, compilations, and in collaborations with other artists such as Mike Oldfield, Todd Rundgren and Rick Wakeman. In the course of her phenomenal career, Bonnie has won numerous awards and added to her immense fan base through her unfailing ability to churn out hits.

Now Bonnie’s back with Heart Strings a collection of songs balancing the hard edge of rock with a symphony orchestra. These are the songs of others, but unmistakably interpreted by the voice of Bonnie Tyler
