Starting at a young age Pat Benatar studied opera, following the lead of her mother. After her divorce, Benatar began a much heavier pursuit of her singing career. In 1997 she found her big break at a New York comedy club. Catch a Rising Sun comedy club was hosting an amateur singing contest where she found her first success

Although her first several shows yielded few promises, one night she decided to try out an old Halloween costume she had lying around. She later recalled the audience’s abnormally loud reaction to the new persona. And following that performance, Pat Benatar was signed by Terry Ellis the founder of Chrysalis Records.

Throughout her career, Pat Benatar produced a ton top ten albums and singles. Songs such as “Heartbreaker”, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”, and “Hell is For Children.” She achieved four "Best Rock Vocal Performance, Female" Grammy’s in a row between 1980 and 1983 and will be joining the ranks of the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in 2007.
