She certainly has the music in her, and for the first time ever she's bringing her talents to the Southern Highlands.
World renowned musical artist, Kiki Dee will be joined with Carmelo Luggeri on their first ever Australian tour.
It all began for Dee as a child. Her love for music and the stage had her entered in a local talent show at the age of ten. At 16 she had her first paid job in show business and hasn't looked back since.

"I was the youngest of three children," Ms Dee said.
"I think children find what gets them attention early on on and I found I could sing in tune. When people would come around to see my family I would sing for them all.
"As a child I wasn't nervous or shy, that came later on (laughs)".
This is the first Australian tour that Dee and musical partner Carmelo Luggeri will be undertaking. Dee did tour Australia with The Bachelors in 1970 but is looking forward to this upcoming tour.
"I'm excited to be coming back with something new," Ms Dee said.
"It's a very new looking show, we've built up a fan base in the UK and Europe. It's really like a new territory for us."
With smash hits under her belt such as You've Made Me So Very Happy and the iconic duet with Elton John, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, Dee enjoys singing her first hit record to this day the most.
"I like to sing a french song called Amoureuse," Ms Dee said.
"It's the first song I had a hit record in 1973 with. We do that live in our acoustic show, I really enjoy that.
"I enjoy singing a lot of our own material. It's an intimate show. When you connect with the audience with music you have written, there's something very special that happens."
Musical partner Carmelo Luggeri and Dee came together through a mutual manager. But things didn't mesh immediately.
Often major things in your life happen with a simple phone call and that's exactly what happenedKiki Dee
"We both had a manager named Steve Brown and he suggested we do some acoustic gigs," Ms Dee said.
"I went through my early career with Elton John and did an album for MoTown and Carmelo was more of a rock player.
"It felt very alien at first, just two people on stage, but now I find it very liberating. There's a lot of space in the music. We've managed to get a different rapport with each show.
"It's not like watching someone in a big stadium where it feels more of an occasion than a musical experience."
Meeting Elton John and creating art that will stand the test of time may not have happened without the ambition of Dee.
"I went to Detroit to do an album for MoTown in 1969," Ms Dee said.
"A guy from Scotland called John Reed was the head of MoTown in London through EMI records. He introduced Elton and I a few years later.
"It was just a random phone call I made to Reed to introduce me to Elton and we just hit it off.
"The timing was right. Elton presented some tracks to me and that was it.
"Often major things in your life happen with a simple phone call and that's exactly what happened."
Dee and Luggeri will be performing at the Bowral Bowling Club and Highlanders are urged to come and take in a night of audio art.
"Come and take a musical journey with us," Ms Dee said.
"It's obviously our first time there. It will be very intimate, we do covers of Kate Bush, the Everly Brothers, originals, and Kiki Dee material.
"It will be a nice evening, so come down and check it out."
Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri will be performing at Bowral Bowling Club on Thursday, August 22.
