Dannii Minogue - Biography & Career
Danielle Jane Minogue (born October 20, 1971), known as Dannii Minogue or simply Dannii, is an Australian singer-songwriter, dancer, actress and an occasional model, television presenter and fashion designer. She rose to prominence in the early 1980s as a result of her role in the Australian television talent show Young Talent Time, before commencing her career as a pop singer and recording artist.
Signed to a contract in 1990 by Australian record label Mushroom Records, she achieved a string of hit records throughout the world, but her popularity began to decline by the mid-1990s, leading her to focus on a television presenting, placing her musical career on hold. In 1997, she returned to music with the hit single "All I Wanna Do", reinventing herself as a pop-dance artist. Signed to dance label Eternal, Dannii's album Girl received rave reviews and was seen by many as her most creative work. Although the album was commercially unsuccessful, it did spawn three huge dance club hit singles (1997-1998).
In 2001, Minogue's comeback instantaneously returned her to the charts with the release of "Who Do You Love Now?", a collaboration with Dutch DJs Zki & Dobri, performing under the group name Riva. The song became Minogue's most successful release worldwide, becoming one of the biggest dance club hits of the year. A further string of successful hit singles followed from her hit album Neon Nights, on London Records. In 2004, Minogue signed yet another deal with All Around The World Records and has released three more Top Twenty singles with them as well as the greatest hits compilation The Hits & Beyond. In the United Kingdom, Minogue has attained nine top-ten singles on the Singles Chart. She has had three Top Twenty albums, two of which hit the Top Ten and achieved Gold status.
