Kimberley Walsh to release solo album

Tuesday November 6, 2012

She may have only just reunited with her Girls Aloud bandmates, but Kimberley Walsh has decided to release a solo collection of her favourite show tunes.

The Strictly Come Dancing Star has recently appeared in Shrek! The Musical, and said that her performance in the show reignited her passion for musicals.

The singer said: "I've always loved musical theatre and doing Shrek! The Musical definitely reignited the passion in me," she said.

"The melodies in so many musical songs are so brilliant I knew we could create something special by experimenting with the production and I really feel like we've come up with some interesting takes on classic songs."

The debut album, Centre Stage, will be released in February, which will be around the same time that Kimberley will tour with Girls Aloud for their tenth anniversary celebrations.
