Kylie Minogue often known simply as Kylie — is an Australian singer, recording
artist, songwriter, showgirl, and actress. After beginning her career as a
child actress on Australian television, she achieved recognition through her
role in the television soap opera Neighbours, before commencing her career
as a recording artist in 1987.
Her first single, "Locomotion", spent seven weeks at number one on the
Australian singles chart and became the highest selling single of the decade.
This led to a contract with songwriters and producers Stock, Aitken & Waterman.
Her debut album, Kylie (1988), and the single "I Should Be So Lucky",
each reached number one in the United Kingdom, and over the next two years,
her first 13 singles reached the British top ten.
