Kim Wilde (born Kim Smith, 18 November 1960)[3] is an English pop singer. She first saw success in 1981 with her debut single “Kids in America“, which peaked at No. 2 in the UK. In 1983, she received the Brit Award for Best British Female solo artist.[4] In 1986, she had a UK No. 2 hit with a reworked version of the Supremes‘ song “You Keep Me Hangin’ On“, which also topped the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1987. Between 1981 and 1996, she had 25 singles that charted within 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 and Austrian charts.

She holds the record for being the most-charted British female solo act of the 1980s, with seventeen UK Top 40 hit singles. Starting in 1998, while still active in music, she has branched into an alternative career as a landscape gardener, which has included presenting gardening shows on the BBC and Channel 4. In 2005, she won a Gold award for her courtyard garden at the Royal Horticultural Society‘s Chelsea Flower Show.
