A legendary singer-songwriter from Welling in Bexleyheath has “risen from the ashes” as she is currently enjoying the comeback of a song she released 37 years ago.

Kate Bush, who is also known as Catherine Bush CBW, has not released a new album or single, but her 1985 track Running Up That Hill has made it back to the UK charts, and climbed even higher than when it was originally released.

Kate is a legendary singer, producer, pianist, and dancer, who began her career in the late seventies and became the first female artist to achieve a UK number one with her self-written song, Wuthering Heights.

Other hits of the powerful female include The Man With The Child In His Eyes, Babooshka and Don’t Give Up – a duet with Peter Gabriel.

Bush celebrated her 64th birthday on Saturday (July 30) and fans across the world joined in to celebrate the star by dancing and dressing in red.

According to The Independent, hundreds of fans gathered in Sydney to dance to Wuthering Heights, wearing red dresses similar to the one worn by Bush in her music video.

Fans in Edinburgh did the same, the BBC reported, as they were raising money for charity as they danced to Bush’s popular music.

While the day was in celebration of Bush, the red dress wearing parties were organised as a not-for-profit fundraiser for the Women’s Legal Service – that was inspired by a 2013 performance by Shambush in Brighton.

Bush’s recent success has been reawakened after TV producers, The Duffer Brothers, featured it into the plot of Netflix’s Sci-Fi series Stranger Things.

All of the time in the world to describe Stranger Things would still not be enough, but in a nutshell, the story follows a group of adolescents who are faced with alien-like monsters, chaos, love, superpowers, and a whole lot of evil.

The iconic record, Running Up That Hill, was woven into the plot of series 4, and due to the surprising success of the track revival, the song reached number two on the UK Singles Chart on June 10, 2022, and reached number 8 in the United States.

The south east London celeb has recently shared her gratitude about the love and attention she has received for the track on her social media accounts and blog and states she has been feeling an “energy that feels very special, unique and quite frankly, bloody moving”.
