Phyllis Nelson (1950 – 1998) was an American R&B/dance singer most famous for her UK chart-topping recording, “Move Closer”, which was her biggest selling hit at #1 and stayed in the charts for nearly six months in 1985. Phyllis also had a successful hit in the US and France with “I Like You”, which reached #1 and #29, respectively.
Phyllis covered one of David Christie’s songs titled “Stop” from his 1982 album “Back In Control”. A year later, Phyllis’s “Stop (Don’t Do This To Me)” was released in 1983 on 7″ and 12″ vinyl singles, and was also included on her best-selling debut album “Move Closer” for Carrere Records in 1984. The album also includes another cover of David’s songs “Heartbeat To Heartbeat” which is worth checking out!
