[Translated for Wilde Life by Krasimira]
Kim Wilde was born on November 18th, 1960 in London. Her father was fascinated by the rock-n-roll music in his youth. It was him who helped his daughter to record her first single Kids In America. The debut was successful the song charted third (a spectacular achievement for a newcomer). The first album came a few months later and again it was a success. Gradually, Kim Wilde became popular in Europe and half a year later her records started selling in America. In music Kim successfully combines the rock sound of fifties with modern rhythms. A magazine wrote in 1985 "Young people love Kim Wilde not only because of her songs, but because of her beauty as well". This is a very good point.
