American singer, songwriter, actress and LGBT activist. Her career has spanned over 30 years. Her debut solo album She's So Unusual (1983) was the first debut female album to chart four top-five hits on the Billboard Hot 100—"Girls Just Want to Have Fun", "Time After Time", "She Bop", and "All Through the Night" earned Lauper the Best New Artist award at the 27th Grammy Awards in 1985. Her success continued with the soundtrack for the motion picture The Goonies and her second record True Colors (1986). This album included the number one hit of the same name and "Change of Heart" which peaked at number 3.

Since 1989, Lauper has released nine studio albums and participated in many other projects. In 2010, Memphis Blues, became Billboard's most successful blues album of the year, remaining at #1 on the Billboard Blues Albums chart for 13 consecutive weeks. In 2013, Lauper won the Tony Award for Best Original Score for the Broadway musical Kinky Boots, making her the first woman in history to win the composing category by herself.

Her 2011 autobiography detailing the singer's battle with child abuse and depression became a New York Times Best Seller.

Lauper has been married to David Thornton since 1991. They have one son, Declyn Wallace Thornton (born 1997). Lauper was raised Roman Catholic and attended Catholic school. She refers to herself as a "Recovering Catholic".

Source Notes

A forum member pointed to her biography in IMDB which states "Born on Monday at 11 PM EST." In fact, the valid timezone on 22 June 1953 was EDT. As NY state does not have the habit of recording standard time while daylight saving time was in force, it is assumed that IMDB was not aware of the correct timezone, but that the clock time reference is correct. IMDB is not a reliable resource, the birth time is not to be trusted.
