Today’s song stayed on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for 36 weeks, then a record for a female artist and peaked at #2 in 1982
Her acting chops include Knight Rider and CHiPs. And she holds the distinction as the female voice to David Hasselhoff's incredible vocals at the end of every Baywatch episode.
The singer saw her song take off again in 2019 when the NHL’s St. Louis Blues adopted it as their victory song when they won the Stanley Cup.
She began returning to performing in the early 2000s, most notably appearing as Janis Joplin in the off-Broadway musical Love, Janis.
Unfortunately we lost her in 2004 at the age of 52. Rest in Peace Laura Branigan.
