Naturalized U.S. citizen.

Her hit song, "We've Got Tonight", with Kenny Rogers, went to #1 on the Billboard Country Charts.
Earned the hits "For Your Eyes Only" (#4), "When He Shines" (#30), "You Could Have Been With Me" (#15), "Telefone (long Distance Love Affair)" (#9), "Modern Girl" (#18), "We've Got Tonight" with Kenny Rogers (#6), "Almost Over You" (#26), "Strut" (#7), "Do It For Love" (29), "Sugar Walls" (#9), "The Lover In Me" (#2), "What Comes Naturally" (#19), "U Got the Look" with Prince (#2) and "Morning Train (Nine to Five)" - her only hit to reach #1 on the Billboard Pop Charts.
Inspired to pursue a singing career after seeing Barbra Streisand in The Way We Were (1973), she later attended the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama while moonlighting with the group Something Else.
Her song "9 to 5" was already a big hit in the UK, so when the song was released in America it went under the title "Morning Train" to avoid confusion with Dolly Parton's recent hit of the same name.
Two time Grammy Award winner

Personal Quotes (2)

in the Orange County Register, 12/22/91] I have never claimed to be Miss Hip and I never tried to appeal to an avant-garde audience with a green streak in my hair, a bag over my head and songs about living couches. Some entertainers lose their way because they're always trying to make a statement with their music or trying to be cool enough to be in with The Rolling Stones crowd. Well, that was never me. So sue me; I'm a pop singer. People bounce along in their cars to my songs and that's good enough for me.
[on her children's awareness of her '80s fame] Living in Vegas, they've seen giant billboards advertising their mom's shows. They're proud of me. I don't do anything to embarrass them. I don't sit around on a Saturday night going, 'So, do you want to watch Mom's videos from the '80s?' [The Arizona Republic, April 6, 2008]
