Biography

Terri Nunn (born June 26, 1961 in Los Angeles, California, U.S.) is an American singer and actress.

She appeared in numerous television shows of the 1970s and 1980s, including T.J. Hooker and Lou Grant. She auditioned for the role of Princess Leia in Star Wars, and appeared in the 1978 film Thank God It’s Friday.

Nunn joined the New Wave, techno-pop band Berlin in 1979, but temporarily left the band the following year to pursue an acting career. In 1981, Nunn rejoined the group as the lead vocalist and would soon forge her recording career with the band. Nunn’s greatest success with Berlin was the top-selling single “Take My Breath Away”, the love theme from the film Top Gun, which reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, and has since been remade in a cover version by Jessica Simpson. Other popular songs songs voiced by Nunn included “Sex (I’m A…)”, “The Metro”, “No More Words”, and “Masquerade”.

In 1985 Nunn took a brief break as lead vocalist for Berlin and recorded the song “Dancing In Isolation” for the film Better Off Dead. The song was produced by British singer and producer Rupert Hine. In 1989, Nunn performed a duet with ex-Squeeze member Paul Carrack called “Romance”. The song appeared the film soundtrack to the movie Sing, starring Peter Dobson and Lorraine Bracco.

In the early 1990s Nunn sang backing vocals for the band The Sisters of Mercy. In 1992, she recorded and released a solo album entitled Moment of Truth.

Nunn briefly sang for a rock band called “Sin City” which played in smaller clubs in Los Angeles in 1996, such as the Martini Lounge (now known as the Larchmont) on 5/14/96 and the (West Hollywood) House of Blues on 12/29/96.
