Nancy Nova

Real Name:
Carol Holness
Nancy Nova released succesful recordings at the very end of the 70's and the early 80's. Notable songs included "The Force", "Made In Japan", "No No No" and "Heaven".

She was a featured artist on Italian TV Show "Non Stop" for six weeks and her single "Akiri Non Stop" was used as the theme tune. Her 1981 single "The Force" received much radio play and was a big hit in the Dance charts. She was a founder member of Toto Coelo but left before they achieved popularity due to her signing a worldwide contract with EMI

She is the daughter of one-time UK game show host Bob Holness and sister of Ros Holness of pop group Toto Coelo. Indeed, she was noted by Paul Gambaccini in the British Hit Singles for being in the charts the same week as her sister (4th September 1982).

Nancy Nova was the backing singer on Nice And Slow by Jesse Green.
