Louise Redknapp

Louise Redknapp (née Nurding) (born November 4, 1974) is a British pop singer, usually referred to by her first name alone.

Louise was born in London and grew up in the town East Grinstead, West Sussex where she attended Imberhorne Secondary School. She first came to prominence as a member of the all girl group Eternal. After a string of hits in 1993-4 from debut album Always & Forever (which became the first by an all girl group to sell over one million copies in the UK), she left the group in 1995 to pursue a solo career.

So far, Louise has registered twelve Top 20 hits, the biggest being 2 Faced (#3), and earned herself several Brit Award nominations.

She married Liverpool and England football player Jamie Redknapp in the Caribbean on June 29, 1998. They have a son called Charley.

In 2001, after trying out a more grown up sound on her third LP Elbow Beach (named after the place where she got married), Louise was dropped by her record label and a best of album, Changing Faces, was released. This was followed by another best of collection from EMI (but with a slightly different tracklisting), Finest Moments, in 2002.

She has since completed a 2002 UK-wide tour, tried her hand at TV presenting (on CD:UK) and hit the UK Top 5 again with Pandora's Kiss in 2003.

In the July 2004 edition of FHM, she was named Sexiest Woman of the Decade.
