The talented and artistic British singer Kate Bush, whose single “Wuthering Heights” topped the charts and became an inspiration to other artists as it carefully portraits the legendary novel that carries the same name, commemorates Emily Bronte’s 18th century novel.

Such talent received a proper recognition when hundreds of red-clad fans of the British singer staged flash mobs in Sydney and Berlin as they re-enacted her classic hit on Saturday. 

The fans gathered in Berlin’s central Goerlitzer Park under light rain, recreating Bush’s moves for a performance lasting about four minutes, an AFP photographer said. 

“Kate is not your everyday pop star, she does everything on her own terms, which included a disappearing act between ‘The Red Shoes’ in 1993 and ‘Aerial’ in 2005 to bring up her child. Most artists would be forgotten in that time, but with Kate, the heart only grew fonder”, said one the blogs devoted to the singer. 

According to the BBC, she was unlike many of her contemporaries, never being one for regularly reissuing her back catalogue nor for rummaging through the archives for previously unreleased outtakes or sneezing fits to satisfy the demand for a new production.  

Moreover, around 100 men, women, and children in Sydney also staged a similar dance in a city park. Other flash mobs are scheduled in Dublin and the Netherlands. It is believed that “Wuthering Heights Day” was launched in Berlin a few years ago and has spread to other cities.
