Patricia Mae Giraldo (née Andrzejewski, January 10, 1953), known professionally as Pat Benatar, is an American rock singer-songwriter and four-time Grammy Award winner. In the United States, she has had two multi-Platinum albums, five Platinum albums, and 15 Billboard Top 40 singles while in Canada she had eight straight Platinum albums.

Benatar's 1979 debut album, In the Heat of the Night, was her breakthrough in North America, especially in Canada where it reached number 3 on the album chart. Two singles from it were hits: "Heartbreaker" and "We Live for Love", the latter written by her lead guitarist and future husband, Neil Giraldo. Benatar's second album, 1981's Crimes of Passion, was her most successful work, peaking at number 2 in North America and France, being certified 4x and 5x Platinum in the US and Canada, respectively. Its single "Hit Me with Your Best Shot" reached the Top 10 in the US and Canada and is considered to be her best-known song. Benatar's third album, Precious Time (1981) was another success, topping the US Album Chart and becoming her first Top 10 album in Australia. Its single "Fire and Ice" charted highly in the US and Canada. Her next release, Get Nervous (1982), sold less well than her previous two albums, but did include the North American hit "Shadows of the Night".
