On July 30, 2019, BERLIN visited the GRAMMY Museum for a special interview. BERLIN will forever be recognized as the American progenitor of electro-pop artistry with sensually appealing lyrics. The Los Angeles-based band made its first national impression with the provocative single "Sex (I'm A...)" from the platinum-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. “The Metro” and “No More Words” were also chart toppers, but it was the unforgettable, intimate, and strikingly beautiful love song, “Take My Breath Away,” that took the band to another level. The ballad’s defining role in the Tom Cruise film, Top Gun, helped solidify BERLIN’s everlasting place in American pop-culture. The song was a #1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for “Best Original Song” in 1986.
BERLIN’s discography has yielded twelve gold and platinum album awards. Meanwhile, the ongoing influence of Nunn, lead singer and founder of the band, has earned her the #11 spot on VH1.com’s “100 Greatest Women in Rock,” while, as an actress, she played leading roles in films including Katie: Portrait of a Centerfold with Kim Basinger, and Thank God It’s Friday with Jeff Goldblum and Debra Winger. Along with comedienne, Wendy Liebman, Nunn also previously hosted the critically acclaimed radio show Unbound with Terri Nunn on 88.5 FM KCSN Los Angeles.
Prior to this event at the GRAMMY Museum, Nunn had just finished recording a brand new BERLIN studio album, Transcendance, with her original BERLIN band members and co-writers, John Crawford (bass) and David Diamond (keyboards). The album was released August 2, 2019 and marked the first collaboration by Nunn, Crawford, and Diamond since Love Life, the third BERLIN album, released in 1984.
