Kiki’s musical career began in the early 1960s as a backing singer for the likes of Dusty Springfield but it was only after signing with Elton John’s The Rocket Record Company that she began to have solo hits – the first of which was Amoreuse in 1973.
In addition to her burgeoning career she could sometimes be heard singing backing vocals on tracks such as Elton John’s All The Girls Love Alice and Yellow Brick Road.
A quiet period in the late seventies ensued but Kiki Dee lauched a comeback in 1981 releasing one of her biggest hits – Star.
She teamed up with Elton John again for a cover of the Four Tops’ song Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever. In 1985 she performed live with Elton John again at Live Aid for a performance of Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.
