[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.
