To add to the already mystical event of the moon passing between the earth and sun, that day, Bonnie Tyler will sing her ICONIC song "Total Eclipse of the Heart," at sea, cruise company Royal Caribbean told BuzzFeed News. The cruise ship will journey to the "optimal spot" for eclipse viewing.

Tyler will not be singing the iconic ballad alone — she will be performing it as a duet with the Joe Jonas–fronted band DNCE.


The president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, Michael Bayley, told Time: “Bonnie Tyler was a natural choice for this once-in-a-lifetime moment.”

The performance will precede the eclipse. An earlier version of this post misstated it would occur during it.
