KIM WILDE

Who does not know them; the new New Wave hits with which Kim Wilde stormed European hit parades in the ’80s? Her debut ‘Kids in America’ immediately became an international success in 1981, followed by top songs like ‘Cambodia’, ‘View From a Bridge’ and ‘Never Trust A Stranger’. She has sold no less than 30 million albums and singles and more than thirty years after her debut, her career has a ‘second youth’

Kim Wilde lives up to her name, her songs are sometimes a tad rough, but at the same time sensitive, by the contagiously melancholic customer of her voice. Rock with a twist that got the title New Wave in the early 90s. A style that was well received by the international pop audience. In 1983 she was named the best English singer at the English BPI Award.

In the 90s she charged a musical sabbatical and filled her time with motherhood and gardening. But Kim came back and how! In 2003 she scored together with the German singer Nena the breathtaking bilingual hit ‘Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime’. Five weeks at number 1 in the Dutch hit parade. That success marked her comeback on stage and in the studio. With ‘You Came’ she scored another hit in 2006 and several new songs followed, of which ‘Here Come The Aliens’ appeared in March last year.

''Héél even klinkt er een aarzeling door in haar stem, maar dan blijkt ze toch echt nog precies zoals in de jaren ’80 te kunnen zingen. En dat klinkt fantastisch.''
