Laura Ann Branigan (July 3, 1957[nb 1] – August 26, 2004)[4] was an American singer, songwriter, and actress best known for her 1982 platinum-certified hit "Gloria" and for the top-5 single "Self Control". Branigan is also remembered for the top-10 song "Solitaire", and for the No. 1 Adult Contemporary (AC) hit "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You", as well as several other U.S. top-40 songs.
Branigan also contributed songs to notable motion picture and television soundtracks, including the Grammy and Academy Award-winning Flashdance soundtrack (1983), the Ghostbusters soundtrack (1984), and the Baywatch soundtrack (1994).
Her signature song "Gloria" by Umberto Tozzi stayed on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for 36 weeks, at the time a record for a female artist; the song holds a place in the top-100 singles of both 1982 and 1983.
Branigan died at her home in 2004 from a previously undiagnosed cerebral aneurysm.
