Welcome Bonnie Tyler
We’re joined on the Starline by a Welsh singer you’ve loved since the 80’s with “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “Holding Out For a Hero”, but her 18th studio album “The Best is Yet to Come” is now out. We welcome Bonnie Tyler.
Bonnie, let’s go Beyond the Mic just about a year ago you were performing your last concert for Music for the Marsden at The O2 with Tom Jones, Eric Clapton, Mick Hucknall. How will it feel to be back singing for more than your husband?
Well, “The Best is Yet to Come”, is a strong song and it could interpreted about the pandemic. Was it written pre or post COVID?
Why does this album give you such joy?
What’s your favorite song of yours and why?
Recently you just learned to swim. What other things were you able to accomplish while stuck in quarantine?
One thing you miss about the 80’s?
Steve Womack specifically wrote “When the Lights Go Down” for you. When you first hear a song written for you what goes through your mind, are you listening to how it makes you feel or how you are going to put your special Bonnie touch on it?
You’ve had such an amazing career, what’s the one thing you are going to take away from it?
“The Best is Yet to Come” is out now, we thank Bonnie Tyler for taking the time to talk with us today.
And that my friends is a Beyond the Mic Short Cut.
