Thanks to her hits Kids In America and You Keep Me Hangin’ On the british singer Kim Wilde (53) appears on every good Greatest hits compilation album. However, she doesn’t plan to leave the stage even after her 50th birthday.
Kim Wilde is one of the stars that wasn’t stopped in her further attempts by the development of the music scene. However, in the ’90s her career was going down but finally she joined the retro wave and brought back dance pop to the nostalgic audience.
In the ’80s Kim was one of the biggest stars and her hits were played at every disco not only in Western Europe. At the time of her greatest popularity Kim Wilde appeared as a special guest of Michael Jackson during his tour. She chose family over career in 1996 when she married Hal Fowler, they have two children – son Harry (16) and daughter Rose (14).
Later Kim Wilde began to dedicate herself to gardening and wrote several books as part of her gardening career. But the music is still very important to her and she is very succesful at the concerts especially with the songs that were written already thirty years ago. But Kim Wilde is still able to bring the same energy as in the days when she had the strange haircut, which nowadays can be seen only in old magazines.
