Kim Wilde (born Kim Smith; 18 November 1960) is an English pop singer, author, DJ, and television presenter who burst onto the music scene in 1981 with her debut single „Kids in America”, which reached number two in the UK. In 1983, she received the Brit Award for Best British Female solo artist. In 1986, she had a UK number two hit with her version of the Supremes’ song „You Keep Me Hangin’ On”, which also went on to be the major US hit, topping the charts there in 1987. Between 1981 and 1996, she had 25 singles reach the Top 50 of the UK singles chart.
Her other hits include „Chequered Love” (1981), „You Came” (1988) and „Never Trust a Stranger” (1988). In 2003, she collaborated with Nena on the song „Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime”, which topped the Dutch charts.
Worldwide, she has sold over 10 million albums and 20 million singles. Starting in 1998, while still active in music, she has branched into an alternative career as a landscape gardener.
Wilde released her new album in 2018, Here Come the Aliens after having an encounter with a UFO in 2009. While sitting in her garden she noticed something odd about the sky. As she beheld, there was a huge bright light behind a cloud. She curiously walked down the grass to track the source of the light and what she noticed was that the light was swiftly moving back and forth. She thought about it every day and it gave her the idea for her new album.
