Full story
In 1983, she launched her solo career with the album "She's So Unusual," which was an immediate success. The album, which included huge hits like "Time After Time" and "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," earned Lauper a slew of prizes and nominations, including the prestigious Grammy Award, and turned her into one of the most influential artists in the 1980s, especially among the young audience.

In 1986 she released her second album, "True Colors," whose title track became a timeless hit, as did the song "Change of Heart." Her third album, "A Night to Remember," was released in 1989 with the hit "I Drove All Night."


Lauper went on with her musical activity and released several other albums, but failed to reach the artistic and commercial success she experienced at the start of her career.


Alongside her work in the music industry, Lauper has appeared in many television programs in different roles, including guest appearances on "The Simpsons," "Memphis Blues," "The Celebrity Apprentice," and more. Over the years, the singer has devoted a lot of her time to social activity for gay and lesbian rights in the United States.


Lauper will be brought to Israel by Udi Appelboim's production company, which produced Alanis Morissette's concert in Israel. Ticket prices range between NIS 199-999 (about $56-283).
