Cyndi Lauper Information:

 Cyndi Lauper an American singer, songwriter, and actress who rose to fame in the 1980s with her unique blend of pop, rock, and new wave music. She is known for her powerful voice, colorful fashion sense, and strong advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights and social justice issues. Lauper's music career has spanned over four decades, and she continues to be an influential figure in the music industry to this day.

 Lauper was born on 22 June 1953, in Astoria, Queens, New York City. She grew up in a dysfunctional family and often faced abuse and neglect from her parents. Despite these challenges, she discovered her love for music at an early age and began singing in local clubs and bars. In the late 1970s, Lauper formed the band Blue Angel and released an eponymous album, which received critical acclaim but commercial failure.

 Lauper's breakthrough came in 1983 with her debut solo album, "She's So Unusual," which featured hit singles such as "Girls Just Want to Have Fun," "Time After Time," and "She Bop." The album was a commercial success, reaching number four on the US Billboard 200 and selling over six million copies worldwide. Lauper's unique style and sound, combined with her quirky persona and feminist message, captured the hearts of millions of fans and earned her numerous awards and accolades.

 Throughout her career, Lauper has continued to release critically acclaimed albums and hit singles, including "True Colors," "I Drove All Night," and "All Through the Night." She has collaborated with other prominent artists such as Phil Collins, Billy Joel, and Cher, and has also contributed to several film and television soundtracks. Lauper's music has been praised for its catchy melodies, heartfelt lyrics, and powerful vocals, and she is widely regarded as one of the most influential female artists of her generation.

 In addition to her music career, Lauper is also a passionate activist for social justice issues, particularly LGBTQ+ rights. She founded the True Colors Fund in 2008, which aims to end homelessness among LGBTQ+ youth, and has also been involved in several other charitable organizations, such as Amnesty International and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). Lauper's advocacy work has earned her numerous awards and honors, including the Human Rights Campaign's Equality Award and the United Nations' First High Note Global Prize.
