The girl was born in Melbourne on May 28, 1968. singer Kylie Minogue She grew up quite a shy child – she did not attract school events, she did not want to participate in children’s theater productions, preferring choreography and music to them. Only once the future singer and actress were able to persuade to perform with other students in the production of “Cinderella.”
Kylie and her younger sister Danny joined the world of show business early on and took their first steps in it. At the same time, the parents of the girls were sure that a successful acting career was waiting for the youngest daughter. Once, her mother took Danny to a screen test, and Kylie was simply taken for company. As a result, it was Kylie Minogue who got the role. After passing the screen test, at 9 years old the girl made her debut on the TV screen. One of her first works was roles in the TV series Skyways and The Sullivans.
It all started with a movie …

Soon, Kylie signs a contract with Deconstruction Records and releases another solo album, Kylie Minogue. Its worldwide sales hit 2.5 million copies, and the single “Confide in Me” held out on top of the Australian charts for five weeks.
