The group was renamed STARSHIP in 1985 and went on to record three #1 hit songs including "We Built This City", "Sara", and "Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now", from the film Mannequin which also was an Academy Award nominee. Their hit “It’s Not Over Til It’s Over” became Major League Baseball’s theme in 1987.
