One of Greece’s most loved singers, Kelly Kelekidou, was born on the 9th of April 1979 and turns 42 today!
In 2005, Kelekidou (sometimes referred to as Kel Kel) signed with Sony Music Greece, and released her first album ‘Kelly Kelekidou’ which peaked at number 16 on the IFPI album charts.
A year later, she appeared alongside Nikos Kourkoulis at club Fos. In 2006, she also released her second album titled ‘Sygkentrosou’ which peaked at number 11 on the IFPI album charts.
In the summer of 2007, Kelekidou appeared at club Romeo with Dionisis Makris and Kostas Martakis. In November of the same year, she released a CD-Single titled ‘Se Thelo Me Trela’, which was peaked at number 1 on the singles chart, and was certified Gold within a few days.
A year later in April, Kelekidou released her third album titled ‘Makria Sou Den Iparho’.
Around the same time, she also appeared with Nikos Kourkoulis at club ORAMA in Thessaloniki, before they toured around Australia together.
On July 14, 2009, Kelekidou married fellow Greek singer Nikos Kourkoulis.
The same year, she gave birth to the couple’s son Thanos-Rafael.
On 1 December 2010, Kelekidou released her fourth studio album titled ‘Aggeli Stin Kolasi’ (Angels in hell), featuring ten songs including a duet with Nikos Kourkoulis.
In 2014, she gave birth to her daughter Elpiniki.
After returning to Greece in 2018 (after having lived in Australia since 2014), she signed with record label Panik Platinum.
