Kimberley Walsh 1/5 of Girls Aloud; singer and performer

We are more used to her as pop princess, fully fledged member of Girls Aloud than Princess Fiona in Shrek – which she performed in early 2012 - but the truth is Kimberley’s always had not just the music in her but the musical. Her whole family loved musicals as children. They would perform them at school (Kimberley went to stage school a few evenings a week) and at home. She is currently celebrating ten years of Girls Aloud with the release of a greatest hits album and a forthcoming arena tour. Kimberley has just released her debut solo Centre Stage, through Decca Records. Centre Stage is an album of songs from musicals, where classic songs are reinvented with Kimberley’s unique imprint firmly stamped upon them. She started recording the album this summer in Stockholm, working with pop producers Per Magnusson and David Kreuger. Together, they have created something special by experimenting with the production. Kimberley also reached the finals of Strictly Come Dancing at the end of last year, where she was one of the show’s most popular contestants.
