Abba Fan Minogue Duets With Benny

KYLIE MINOGUE is delighted at the chance to fulfil a lifelong ambition - she will sing a live duet with ABBA legend BENNY ANDERSSON.
The Australian singer has been a fan of the Swedish stars since her childhood, and admits she would sing their songs into her hairbrush and dream of life as a pop idol when she was a little girl.
Now the Spinning Around hitmaker will share a stage with songwriter Andersson at a tribute concert to the Swedish four-piece in London next month (Sept09).
Minogue will headline BBC Radio 2's Abba tribute concert - Thank You For The Music: A Celebration Of The Music of Abba - in Hyde Park on September 13 (09).
She plans to perform the band's global hit Super Trouper before duetting with Andersson on When All Is Said and Done.
The singer says, "This is a dream come true. Abba's music has played such a great part in my life and I'm thrilled I'll be able to share that with them personally."
And in a posting on her Twitter.com blog on Thursday (27Aug09), she confessed to impersonating the Swedish band in her childhood: "I was 8, sang with ABBA (Read - hairbrush/lounge-room), treasured my knee-high ABBA socks... spoke w (with) Benny yesterday... Aaaaaaahhhhhh!!!"
