Nena is a German singer-songwriter, actress, and comedian who rose to international fame in 1983 with the Neue Deutsche Welle song “99 Luftballons”. In the same year she re-recorded this song in English as “99 Red Balloons”. Nena was also the name of the band with whom she released the song. The re-recording of some of her old songs rekindled her career in 2002 and she has sold over 25 million records, making her one of Germany’s most successful music artists.
