Former background vocalist for the likes of Melissa Manchester, Chaka Khan and Leo Sayer, American Robin Beck briefly topped the U.K. and German charts with 1988's "The First Time," a song used in a Coca-Cola commercial. Her subsequent album, Trouble or Nothin' (1989), failed to generate much interest, despite the contributions from such experienced songwriters as Desmond Child and Diane Warren. The songs released as singles failed as well -- "Save Up All Your Tears" had already been made famous by Cher and "Tears in the Rain" would be covered by Jennifer Rush with greater success five years later. In 1992, Beck released her second album, with the single "In My Heart to Stay" becoming a minor hit in Germany. Her 1994 song "Close to You" could be heard in publicity spots for a large fast-food chain. ~ Yuri German
