Born as Patricia Mae Andrzejewski on January 10, 1953, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York City, Benatar is an acclaimed mezzo-soprano and one of the leading female rock vocalists worldwide. Singing her first solo at the age of eight, Benatar showed her interest in theater and began voice lessons very early. Raised in suburban Lindenhurst, Long Island, years later she flaunted the power of her 4.5-octave voice at the Lindenhurst Senior High's musical-theater department. However, Pat took everyone by surprise by marrying her high-school sweetheart Dennis T. Benatar, a soldier, with whom she moved off to Virginia where he had been stationed. Not before long, Pat got tired of the tedious life as a housewife and bank clerk and she joined Coxon's Army, a lounge band on the Richmond club circuit. As the band garnered more and more attention, Pat gained enough confidence to move to New York City and pursue her own dream. This is how she came to perform at Manhattan's "Catch A Rising Star," where she thrilled the audience and got a regular slot in no time. Next, she signed with Chrysallis Records and saw the release of the million-selling, debut album In The Heat Of The Night (1979).

In addition, she produced 14 Top 40 singles including the following Top 10 hits: Hit Me with Your Best Shot, Love Is a Battlefield, We Belong and Invincible. Being an award-wining and audiences' favorite singer, Pat Benatar became one of the most heavily played artists in the early days of MTV.
