Singer Who Performed at Trump NYE Party Slams Mar-a-Lago for Not Following COVID-Safe Protocols Stipulated in Her Contract
Over the weekend, numerous videos emerged of well known performers singing at the Trump New Years Eve Party. Groups like the Beach Boys and Vanilla Ice seemed to be enjoying themselves as the mask-less crowd went wild.
One of the events performers, though, left with a sour taste in their mouth. Terri Nunn, who fronts the 1980’s outfr Berlin, said she was appalled by the lack of social distancing protocols at the event, despite them being stipulated in her contract. Last night, the singer released a statement slamming the venue.
Nunn, who’s group rose to fame with the song, Take My Breath Away, also apologized to fans. She wrote on her Facebook page, “I am truly sorry I performed at Mar-a-Lago and would not have done so if I’d known what I learned while I was there. My goal in performing was not to support a political party. I see now that that’s not the way it appeared and I am apologetic for that as well.”
The singer continued:
“The contract stated it was a small Covid-safe event for the members of Mar-a-Lago. Unfortunately it was not Covid-safe anywhere in Florida. I had no idea masks and social distancing were not required. I thought I was current on all Covid news everywhere, but clearly I was not. I was shocked by Florida and Mar-a-Lago’s lack of regard for the pandemic, and if I’d known I would never have gone. Once I fulfilled my contractual obligation, I left the event as quickly as I could. It is a mistake I regret. I took a Covid 19 test yesterday and tested negative.”
