Jennifer Rush, the '80s songstress who was a chart-topper in Britain but fared less well in the U.S. until she was covered by Celine Dion, hit platinum record status with the sale of her apartment at the San Remo. Rush unloaded her 2BR/3BA apartment for $5.2 million, or 16% above the asking price of $4.5 million. The 12th floor apartment is 2,450 square feet and features views of Central Park. The buyer was John Zeiler, CEO of Manhattan-based Hudson Housing Capital, according to The Real Deal.
Rush hit pop-music gold with her single "The Power of Love", which is not the Huey Lewis & The News hit you're thinking of now.
The music video for "The Power of Love" came out in 1986 and is a highly cinematic, albeit confusing, tribute to New York in the '80s. There is a plot of sorts, featuring Meatpacking gangsters, a boyfriend Knicks fan, unnecessary aviator sunglasses, slow rides up and down freight elevators, a gaggle of unrelated children, and slo-mo vehicular violence. Enjoy!
