Cyndi Lauper burst onto the world stage in 1984 as the quintessential girl who wants to have fun. And now, Filipinos will be able to hear her bopping songs again on March 17, 2012 at the SMART ARANETA COLISEUM.
The album went to charts with songs “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”, “She Bop”, “All Through The Night” and my favorite ”Time After Time.”
After winning the Grammy in 1985 for best new artist and becoming the first artist in history to have five top ten singles from a debut album, Cyndi Lauper continues to garner critical acclaim as a singer, musician, actor and writer. Cyndi has released 12 albums, over 40 singles and has sold more than 25 million records world wide. She has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, 2 Emmy Awards, 2 American Music Awards, 7 American Video Awards, 18 MTV awards.
Here’s the music video of “Time After Time”:
