Kate Bush Thanks Everyone, Including Fans, For Her CBE

Yesterday, Kate Bush received her CBE from Queen Elizabeth in a ceremony at Windsor Castle.

The CBE, or Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, is the third of five classes of honors that are bestowed by the Queen twice per year. Bush's was awarded for her service to the music industry.

Kate went on her official site, Fish People, to thank everyone including her loyal fans.
I feel incredibly thrilled to receive this honour which I share with my family, friends and fellow musicians and everyone who has been such an important part of it all.

Now I've got something really special to put on top of the Christmas tree.

The 'everyone' in the quote above of course includes all of you. Thank you so very much for all your fantastic support and encouragement. I feel extremely privileged to still have an audience. It's you that have made my work, which would otherwise have just been creative projects, into a success.

Many, many thanks to the best fans ever,

Kate x

PS I hate the term 'fans' but couldn't think of how else to word it.
Bush's last album, 50 Words For Snow, was released in 2011.
