Kate Bush is British singer, songwriter and pianist. She made her musical debut at the young and impressionable age of 19 with hit single “Wuthering Heights”.
The tune topped the charts for over four weeks, which is an amazing achievement at such a young age.
The star is back in the news after her 1985 single "Running Up That Hill" gained newfound popularity as it was the sound track for season 4 of Netflix's Stranger Things.
The song has become so popular with Gen Z as a result of the show that it is now number one in the UK charts and the current most streamed song on Spotify.
This makes Kate Bush both the youngest and oldest woman to have a self-written UK number one.
In between all these remarkable achievements Bush has released 25 Top 40 singles, including the catchy “Babooshka” and “Don’t Give Up” duet with Peter Gabriel.
Her ethereal singing style is both as captivating as it is charming. It is this combination that has helped her meander through the competitive walls of fame and reach world-wide acclaim.
What Is Kate Bush's Net Worth In 2022?
Now, whilst net worth is not the sole measure of success it can be an intelligible indicator of achievement.
After a lifetime’s work in the industry, Kate Bush is worth a reported $60 million dollars or approximately £47 million.
But was Kate’s story a tale of humble beginnings, or was she always destined for fame?
She was born in Kent and had a fairly middle-class upbringing. Her father was a doctor and her mother a nurse.
It was really her siblings that teased out her artistic side.
Brothers John and Paddy were both involved in the local folk music scene and later went on to become a photographer and a musical craftsmen respectively.
Bush is happily married to guitarist Danny McIntosh with whom she has one son called Albert.
But Bush has never been swayed by the rolling hills of Hollywood or the glitz and glam of LA.
Throughout her career she has remained firmly rooted in the UK and has lived in East London and Berkshire, before her most recent move to Devon.Featured Image Credit: Alamy
