Kiki returns to her true love with an intimate set
In a career which has spanned some five decades, Kiki Dee's impeccable vocal abilities have established her as one of the country's finest singers. She has covered all bases, from classic soul renditions to a repertoire which includes eight UK Top 40 hits as well as masterful performances in major West End musicals.
Kiki began her career in the 1960s, working as a session vocalist with the likes of Dusty Springfield. Her early solo recordings of American soul tracks attracted the attention of executives from the legendary Tamla Motown, and Kiki became the first European artist to be signed to the label.
Despite widespread critical acclaim, commercial success remained elusive until 1973 when she joined Elton John's label, Rocket Records. Amoureuse became Kiki's first top 20 hit, but it was her 1976 duet with Elton, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, which propelled her to super stardom, topping the charts both here and in the States.
In the 1980s she became a successful West End actress, earning an Olivier Award nomination for her role in Blood Brothers, before returning to the top of the charts with True Love in 1993.
