Kim Wilde was the first child of 1950s rock 'n' roller Marty Wilde (real name Reginald Smith) and Joyce Baker, formerly of the British singing and dancing group, The Vernons Girls. Her debut album was released when she was 20 years old, and turned her into Europe's most popular female popstar within a few months time.
Six subsequent albums for MCA Records have included international hits such as "Another Step (Closer To You)", "You Came", "Never Trust A Stranger", "Four Letter Word", "If I Can't Have You" and a remake of the Supremes classic "You Keep Me Hangin' On" - which gave Kim Wilde her first U.S. #1 single in 1987 - all of which have contributed to total worldwide album and single sales in excess of 7 million and 12 million respectively. Her highest charting singles to date in the UK are "Kids in America" and "You Keep Me Hangin' On", both of which reached number 2; and her most successful album in the UK and worldwide is 1988's Close which spawned 3 huge Top 10 singles and spent almost eight months on the UK album chart.
Kim Wilde has undertaken five solo tours and has performed as opening act for Michael Jackson in 1988, and for David Bowie in 1990. Adding a new dimension to this highly successful career, Kim Wilde appeared in London's West End production of the musical, Tommy, from February 1996 to February 1997.
In 2001, Kim Wilde performed live for the first time in years, as a guest star in a show by ABBA tribute band, Fabba, for a local charity. This sparked her interest in performing live again. Since November 2001, she has toured the UK three times in the "Here & Now Tour", an Eighties revival concert series, together with recording artists such as Paul Young, Human League, Belinda Carlisle and Howard Jones. New music also followed: in 2001 she recorded a new track, "Loved", for a compilation album which became a surprise hit in Belgium, and in 2003 she had pan-European success with "Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime", a duet with another 1980s pop star German singer, Nena.
