Kate receives her award

I’m delighted to tell you all that Kate has won the Best Classic Songwriter award at the 12th Annual Q Magazine awards. Kate was there to receive her award! The ceremony took place at the Park Lane hotel in London today. The BBC website reports: “The awards, which are well respected within the music industry, also singled out veteran singer Kate Bush for a special classic songwriter award. After receiving a standing ovation she said:

“This is just great, I am making an album but it is just taking a little longer than I thought and I have been having a great time with my son.”

Congratulations Kate!
