But that is without counting the big boost made by Netflix with his series Stranger Things. Inside, she allows Sadie Sink, who plays the character of Max, to escape Vecna.
Since then she is popular with young people again. It was such a surprise for Kate Bush that she was obliged to express herself in the face of this comeback.
