Nik Kershaw Interview with Melody Nights


Pop Icon Nik Kershaw was in Berlin recently performing at the 02 World as part of the "Back to the 80's" tour. He took time out for an interview with Melody Nights.

London, United Kingdom, December 14, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Nik Kershaw, the singer/ songwriter from England was interviewed by Melody Nights, in Berlin, Germany, on December 2nd, 2011 where Nik was performing at the "Back to the 80's" concert at the 02 World venue.

Nik Kershaw had massive chart success in the 1980's with songs like The Riddle, Don't let the sun go down on me, Wouldn't it be good and more.

Although born in Bristol, Kershaw grew up in Ipswich, Suffolk, and after leaving Northgate High School in 1976 worked as a shop assistant and in the Department of Employment for several years, during which time he played guitar and sang in a number of underground Ipswich bands. However, when the last of these, Fusion, split up in 1982, he embarked on a full time career as a songwriter and performer.[1] In 1983, he signed a recording contract with MCA Records, a deal which spawned his debut single, "I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me."

At the beginning of 1984, Kershaw released his breakthrough song "Wouldn't It Be Good",[1] which reached Number 4 in the UK Singles Chart, and was a big success in Europe, particularly in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and in Scandinavia, Australia and New Zealand. The music video, featuring Kershaw as a chroma key-suited alien, received heavy rotation by MTV, helping the song reach #46 in the United States. He enjoyed three more Top 20 hits from his debut album Human Racing, including the title track and a successful re-issue of "I Won't Let the Sun Go Down on Me".[1] This track ultimately proved his biggest hit as a performer when it reached Number 2 in the UK.[2]

Kershaw's second album was The Riddle. The title track proved to be another UK and international hit single, and the album also spawned two more UK Top 10 hits, "Wide Boy" and "Don Quixote", as it went platinum.

In July 1985, Kershaw was among the performers at Live Aid, held at Wembley Stadium.
