Cyndi Lauper filled Atlanta Symphony Hall Sunday night with music from her new country album, Detour and many of her beloved hits from She's So Unusual

I must say, at 63 (her birthday is the end of this month) she looks fabulous and can still belt out her four-octave vocals. flawlessly.  The thrift shop fashionista strutted her signature style and rocked cotton candy-colored hair as well. 

Backed by a five-piece band, Lauper impressed the crowd with Wanda Jackson’s “Funnel of Love” and Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight."

She shared stories of her childhood about watching Saturday morning cartoons and running around the house with stick ponies, as she held one onstage.

She also paid tribute to The Purple One by singing “When You Were Mine,” the Prince composition she covered on “She’s So Unusual.”  Lauper explained that she’s been singing the song in her set for years, but “It’s taken on a different meaning now … Prince was always so gracious and kind to me and the True Colors Fund.  And, he was funny, too – quirky as heck!”

For those who weren't there, highlights of Cyndi Lauper's performance are below:
