SHE'S had more hits than most and the sort of career that puts her firmly in the category of 'music legend'.

But in the UK Tori Amos is probably best known for her 90s smash Professional Widow, which reached No1 in 1996.


The song appeared on her Boys For Pele album with remixes by Armand van Helden and MK.

Released as Professional Widow (It's Got to Be Big), the track became an era-defining club classic.

These days Tori is still touring and making music and last month thanked fans for their messages as she turned 59.

Wearing glasses and with her trademark red hair on display, she tipped a wide-brimmed hat to followers and winked.

She wrote: "Thanks so much for all the beautiful birthday messages, it truly makes this day very special… I miss you and can't wait to see y'all soon."

90s pop legend unrecognisable decades after global fame – can you tell who she is?

She has recently wrapped up a North American tour in Los Angeles and kicks of a European one in Brussels next year.

The American star tends to split her time between Florida in the US and Bude in Cornwall, where she spent lockdown.

Her 16th album, Ocean to Ocean, which was released last autumn, was written and recorded in the home studio she has in her 300-year-old Cornish barn.

Tori married Mark Hawley, an English sound engineer, in 1998 and they share a 22-year-old daughter.

The songwriter rose to fame thanks to her 1992 album Little Earthquakes, following it up with 1993's Under The Pink, which reached No1 in the UK.

She has three Top 10 singles – Professional Widow (It's Got To Be Big), Pretty Good Year and Cornflake Girl, which spent seven weeks in the chart.
