Biography

United Kingdom (1976 – 1993)

Elton John & Kiki Dee was an collaboration of two singers from the United Kingdom. Best known for the chart topping duet “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” which they recorded in 1976. In 1993 they performed together again for another duet for Elton John’s Duets album, a cover version of Cole Porter’s “True Love”, which reached #2 in the UK.

Kiki Dee (born Pauline Matthews on 6 March 1947, in Little Horton, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England) is a highly successful singer/songwriter, with a career that has lasted over 40 years.

Her most famous song was a duet with Elton John, entitled “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, which was released in 1976 and went to Number 1 (she later performed another duet with Elton John for his Duets album, “True Love”, which reached #2 in the UK.)

Kiki Dee began singing with a local band in Bradford in the early 1960s. Her recording career began as a session singer. She sang backing vocals for Dusty Springfield, among others, and was highly regarded by other singers but did not achieve solo success in the UK for many years. In the USA, her style was admired and she became the first British artist to be signed by Tamla Motown, releasing her first Tamla single in 1970.

In the days before Radio 1, Kiki Dee was a regular performer of other people’s hits on BBC radio, and she starred with a group of session singers in the BBC2 singalong series One More Time.
