Dannii Minogue

Danielle Jane "Dannii" Minogue (born October 20, 1971), sister of Australian superstar Kylie, began her career on Australian Talent Show Young Talent Time. From there she landed a role in the phenomonally successful soap Home and Away. This lead to Dannii following sister Kylie into the pop charts. Her debut album Love And Kisses, released in 1990, contained five top 40 hits including Success and Jump To The Beat. Dannii also filmed her first and so far only film role in Secrets (1993)

Follow up effort Get Into You (1993) fared less successfully with This Is It being her only top 10 hit from it. After the failure of Get Into You Dannii parted company with RCA and Mushroom Records.

In 1997 a now divorced, bleached blonde, ex playboy covergirl, Dannii landed a multi million dollar contract with Eternal Records who released the album Girl with her first top 5 hit All I Wanna Do. However Girl limped into the UK charts at #57 and she was dropped again.

Now without a record deal Dannii reignited her passion for acting and toured Australia in the sell out Grease: The Arena Spectacular and followed that with performances in the Hunchback of Notre Dame in London's West End as well as the Vagina Monologues.

In 2001, as sister Kylie made a comeback, Dannii recorded a song with dance act Riva, the track Who Do You Love Now? became Dannii's 13th top 40 hit in the UK and her biggest hit ever slamming into the charts at #3. Following the success of this, Dannii landed a mammoth 6 album deal with London Records.
