You have to give it up to Royal Caribbean for some great advertising for this one.

With the much-talked-about solar eclipse taking place on August 21, the cruise line has booked Bonnie Tyler for their "Total Eclipse" cruise to sing her memorable hit.

The native of Wales received a recording contract, and they suggested she change her name. Born Gaynor Hopkins, she'd changed it to Sherene Davis. She changed it once again to "Bonnie Tyler."

She had a few hits without much impact in the United States until her 1978 hit "It's a Heartache." It would be another five years before her next big hit, "Total Eclipse of the Heart," that hit number one and nabbed her two Grammy nominations.

The U.S. will see its first total solar eclipse in 38 years. It will be visible from 14 states, with the other contiguous states only seeing a partial eclipse.

The Royal Caribbean cruise line has planned a seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise on their Oasis of the Seas ship that they have named the "Total Eclipse" cruise. They'll have a viewing party on August 21, a cruising day in their itinerary, and are set to cruise through "the optimal spot at sea" to witness the eclipse.

They'll have a concert by DNCE, and their surprise guest will be Bonnie Tyler. And yes, of course, she'll be singing "Total Eclipse of the Heart." She'll sing her hit just as the eclipse becomes visible.

Tyler has mentioned that the eclipse is only supposed to last for a duration of two minutes and 40 seconds, yet her song is almost double that and four minutes and 30 seconds.

The CEO of the cruise like said having Tyler sing "was a natural choice for this once-in-a-lifetime moment."
