Kylie And Jason Back Together!
For the first time in 23 years former ‘Neighbours’ couple Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan will be performing the classic hit, ‘Especially For You’. The duo will appear at the PWL Hit Factory Live Showcase in London’s Hyde Park on July 11th 2012.
Mobile DJs should probably start dusting off the vinyl as witnessing the pairing for the first time in two decades will no doubt create a surge of requests! The song, which was recorded in 1988, was Kylie’s 5th international hit and the bestselling Stock Aitken-Waterman penned single ever. The release of the track was to coincide with the wedding of Kylie’s ‘Neighbours’ character to Jason’s, and just in time for the Christmas charts in the UK. The song sold over 1 million copies but was pipped to the Christmas number one spot by Cliff Richard.
‘Especially For You’ appeared on Kylie’s album ‘Enjoy Yourself’ and was her best-selling single in the UK until ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ in 2001. Jason Donovan isn’t the only artist she has performed the track with however, in 2001 during her one-off special ‘A Night With Kylie Minogue’ she duetted with Kermit The Frog.
The PLW Hit Factory Live showcase will also feature Steps, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Dead Or Alive, Pepsi & Shirlie, Princess, SInitta, Hazell Dean, Sonia, Sybil, 2 Unlimited, Lonnie Gordon and Brother Beyond.
