Phyllis Nelson (from Indiana, USA born on 3 October 1950 - died 12 January 1998, Los Angeles), was an American singer. In 1981 she released " Don't Stop the Train" as the first single from the album "Move Closed". Nelson worked and recorded for several years from the late 1970s into the mid 1980s without achieving much success. Her records were usually dance tracks, and she had also recorded quite a number of records during the disco era. In 1985 she recorded a self written ballad entitled "Move Closer". It was a complete departure from the type of music she had been recording.
