Artist Bio

2012 Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Celebrated pop singer Kylie Minogue (originally from Australia) has been wowing audiences around the world for 25 years. Her catchy, lovable brand of pop music has stayed current for over two decades, while she continues to break all kinds of international records for sold-out concerts and album sales.

Kylie’s latest album, “The Abbey Road Sessions,” was released Oct. 29, 2012, and features classic Kylie tracks with brand new arrangements, many featuring a full orchestra.

Kylie’s sensational singing career began in 1987, when she released her first single, a remake of the 1962 Little Eva hit “Locomotion.” The song hit No.1 in Australia and remained in the top spot for seven weeks, becoming the biggest Australian single of the ‘80’s. Two decades later Kylie achieved the record for the most played female artist on UK radio over the last 20 years.

During that time, she has released eleven studio albums, two live CDs, eight live concert DVD’s, plus her Greatest Hits and the Ultimate Kylie double album and multiple video packages. This is in addition to over 50 singles released internationally, all of which have been hits.

Kylie has been the guest of Royalty in Britain and Europe, she’s received countless gold and platinum discs; she’s been honored with numerous prestigious awards, sold-out nine record breaking world tours and in 2000 closed the Sydney Olympics.

Today Kylie is one of the world’s most successful female music artists, but she wasn’t always known as a singer. Kylie started her career at age eleven when approached to act in the national Australian TV drama series “Skyways”, followed by more Australian television roles in the popular drama “The Sullivans” and later “The Henderson Kids.”

Kylie “Fever” reached its peak in 2001 with the release of her global smash hit “Can’t Get You Out Of My Head.”  The song garnered three Ivor Novello Awards for Best International Single, Best Dance Record and Most Played Record of The Year, and scooped an MTV Award for Best Choreography in a Music Video. Kylie also earned the 2002 MTV Music Awards Best Pop Act and Best Dance Act.

In 2003, Kylie was awarded a Centenary Medal by the Governor General of Australia for “Outstanding Contribution to the Music Industry” and for the third year in a row won “Australian Performer of the Year.” She received a Grammy in 2004 for “Come Into My World’.”  And in 2007, she was the first woman ever to receive Britain’s prestigious annual Music Industry Trusts’ Award. She has received many other prestigious British and Australian music awards including ARIA and Brit Awards.
