Get to Know Terri Nunn, Lead Singer of Berlin
By Oracle Staff on Sep 07, 2010
See Berlin Live at the Oracle Appreciation Event on Sept. 22
The OpenWorld Blog staff checked in with Terri Nunn, Berlin's lead singer, about her band's upcoming performance and what she thinks of the OpenWorld crowd. Look for Part 2 of our interview next week!
Blog Staff: This will be the third time you've performed at OpenWorld. What are your memories of the previous show?
Terri Nunn: The last time I performed at OpenWorld was one of the highlights of my life. The amazing Oracle people gave us the unbelievable opportunity to play with ELTON JOHN! I don't care where my career has gone or will go; that night will be a standout forever. The crowd seemed in a daze and it's no wonder. How often will you ever get to see Elton John and--even more incredibly--see him at a company party?
Blog Staff: Do you like performing in San Francisco? Are there any particular things you do while you're here?
Terri Nunn: San Francisco's such a gorgeous place. The weather is perfect for me. I like places that are cooler, especially in the summer. I love the character of the city, the hilly streets and the archictecture. And we are SO EXCITED to play with THE BLACK EYED PEAS!! It's our first time!
Blog Staff: What have you been up to this summer?
Terri Nunn: I've been playing concerts and touring behind our latest release, "ALL THE WAY IN," a CD/DVD package. I'm also completing an all-new studio album that will come out in 2011. Simultaneously, I'm co-hosting a new talk show every week called "Between The Sheets" on HotTalkLA.com. We interview amazing guests - we recently did a two-parter with Grace Slick from the Jefferson Airplane, one of my heroes! She asked me to sing on a song with her to benefit the needy people in Louisiana right now called "Edge of Madness." In return, she let me interview her. You can download "Between The Sheets" shows anytime at HotTalkLA.com or on iTunes.
Other than work, I've been teaching my daughter how to swim! She goes into first grade in September.
