Bonnie Tyler to perform ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ during eclipse with Joe Jonas & DNCE
Bonnie Tyler will sing her iconic hit, “Total Eclipse of the Heart,” during the total solar eclipse taking place today (August 21, 2017).
“I’m on this amazing ship called the Oasis of the Seas, and we’re going to pass right through the totality area a little later on,” Tyler said live from the cruise ship on GMA. “We’ll all be wearing our funny glasses, of course, and we’ll see the total eclipse.”
Tyler said she is thrilled to sing the song.
“I never get tired of singing the song,” she shared. “It’s a great song and it gets everyone in the mood.”
Today all of North America will witness the eclipse of the sun for the first time in 99 years, where the Moon will pass in front of the Sun.
Dubbed the Great American Eclipse, the moment will see the Sun, the Moon and the Earth become perfectly aligned in a once-in-a-lifetime celestial spectacle seen from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean.
“The eclipse of the sun lasts 2 minutes and 40 minutes, I’m told,. Unlike my song. It had to be chopped about, because it was so long,” she said of her 1983 hit ballad.
If you’re not in the US and still want to view the eclipse, Time magazine has set up a live stream for you to watch and enjoy.
