Kylie Ann Minogue was born on 28 May 1968. The eldest of three children, Kylie’s acting career began early, but it was her role as Charlene in the Australian soap Neighbours in 1985 which established Kylie as an international star. Her singing career began purely by accident when a record company executive heard Kylie’s rendition of Little Eva’s 1962 hit “The Loco-Motion”. She signed with PWL Records and hit-makers Stock/Aitken/Waterman in 1987. Five albums and a greatest hits compilation followed, and she made history by having more than 20 consecutive top ten hits in the UK. Kylie left PWL Records in 1992 to head in a decidedly more mature musical direction, and chart hits like “Confide In Me” and “Put Yourself In My Place” followed.
In 2005 Kylie had treatment for breast cancer, but by 2006 had courageously recovered and returned to work, preparing for her Showgirl Homecoming Tour, which kicked off in November 2006.
Kylie has established one of the longest and most successful careers as a performer in contemporary pop music and has become one of her generation´s most recognizable celebrities and sex symbols.
