T'Pau is a British pop rock group led by singer Carol Decker. They had had a string of Top 40 hits in the UK in the late 1980s, most notably 'China in Your Hand' and 'Heart and Soul', and several hits in the United States and Europe, before disbanding in the early 1990s. Decker still performs under the name T'Pau at solo shows and 1980s nostalgia concerts. The band formed in 1986 in Shropshire, taking their name from a Vulcan priestess of the same name in the 1960s sci-fi series Star Trek. Prior to deciding on this name, they were called Talking America on early demos sent to record and publishing companies. Their first hit was the 1987 release 'Heart and Soul'. Initially a flop in the UK, it first became a hit in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, reaching No.
