Cyndi Lauper is an American singer, songwriter, actress and LGBT rights activist who achieved success in the mid-1980s with the release of the album She's So Unusual, becoming the first female singer to have four top-five singles released from one album.

The Top 5 hits "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun", "She Bop", "All Through the Night" and number-one single "Time After Time" became some of the most important albums and singles of the 80s.

The album earned Lauper two 27th Grammy Awards in 1985, including Best New Artist.

She continued success with their follow-up, True Colors, which launched several hits including the number-one single "True Colors", and earned her two nominations at 29th Grammy Awards.
