Kate Bush- *wrote this Woman’s work
Wiki: Kate Bush (born Catherine Bush 30 July 1958) is an English singer-songwriter, musician and record producer. Her eclectic musical style and idiosyncratic vocal style have made her one of the United Kingdom’s most successful solo female performers of the past 30 years.
In 1978, at the age of 19, Bush topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut single “Wuthering Heights”, becoming the first woman to have a UK number one with a self-written song. She has since released ten albums, three of which topped the UK Albums Chart, and has had 25 UK Top 40 hit singles including the Top 10 hits “Wuthering Heights”, “Running Up that Hill”, “King of the Mountain”, “Babooshka”, “The Man with the Child in His Eyes”, and “Don’t Give Up”.
In 1987, she won a Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist, and in 2002, her songwriting ability was recognised with an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. During the course of her career, she has also been nominated for three Grammy Awards. After her 1979 tour — the only concert tour of her career — Bush released the 1980 album Never for Ever, which made her the first British solo female artist to top the UK album charts and the first female artist ever to enter the album chart at Number 1.
In 1990, the boxed-set This Woman’s Work was released and included all of her albums with their original cover art, as well as two discs of all single B sides recorded from 1978–1990. In 1991, Bush released a cover of Elton John’s “Rocket Man”, which reached number 12 in the UK singles chart and in 2007, was voted the greatest cover ever by readers of The Observer newspaper. She recorded “Candle in the Wind”, as the single’s b-side.

The band mutually agreed, but never regrouped
<Wiki: Gerald Maxwell Rivera, known as Maxwell, (born May 23, 1973), is an American R&B, funk and neo soul musician. He played an important role in the development of the soul sub-genre, neo-soul.
Maxwell began working with songwriter Leon Ware and noted guitarist Wah Wah Watson to record his debut Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite in the early 1990s. When the album was finished Columbia had doubts about its potential and shelved it for two years. The album was finally issued in 1996.
Heavily inspired by the sound of classic soul music, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite did not catch on with audiences until the release of its second single, “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder),” which became a hit. [[BET’s groundbreaking show, In Your Ear would introduce him to more than 58 million homes and Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite would go on to sell over 2,000,000 copies, earning 2X platinum status, and was nominated for a Grammy Award.
I love all three versions of this song.
