Terri Nunn has expressed regret for playing a New Year`s Eve gig at President Donald Trump`s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
Berlin`s lead singer said she was shocked by the lack of COVID protocols – the absence of face coverings and social distancing at the resort and apologized for performing at the controversial gig.
In a statement on Berlin`s Facebook page, the 51-year-old musician said: “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 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,” she continued.
“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.”
Terri Nunn who made many fans by her frequent appearances at Pride festivals said her fanbase regarded her performance at the controversial gig as a betrayal of their values.
