The first song I ever sang on stage was Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart for my grade 8 talent show. I dueted with the music teacher and my back up singers were a small choir of girls I was learning to sing four part harmonies with. So, when I started working at CKUT and found out that the the music department has a show called Total Eclipse of the Charts, I was thrilled to no end. So when it came time to name a new concert series, I had only one suggestion in mind….
