In 1999 members of the rock industry and the VH1 show 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll selected Annie Lennox as "The Greatest White Soul Singer Alive". But that's not all, Rolling Stone magazine also named her as one of their 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. Both as a solo artist and with Eurythmics, Lennox has sold over 80 million records.
During the 80s, Annie Lennox focus went into making music. Apparently, when her children were born, she says, her priorities shifted. Now she devotes much of her time and energy to supporting different humanitarian causes. She says: “I need to find meaning in my life to make me happy; and that’s been an ongoing struggle.”
Nowadays, she's being politically acitve and involve in humanitarian work with UNICEF and the Treatment Action Campaign. Recently on her blog, she spoke out against the recent conflict in Gaza. “I am making a plea on behalf of innocent civilians. ALL innocent civilians on BOTH sides. Now that Israeli ground forces have entered Gaza, there is only one guarantee… ABSOLUTE CARNAGE.Those are definitely politically charged words.
As for current music work, "The Annie Lennox Collection" is the first greatest hits compilation by the singer-songwriter. The Greatest Hits album will be released on February 10, 2009. Among the newly recorded tracks are: "Shining Light", originally a single by Ash, and a cover of Keane's rare B-side "Closer Now", retitled "Pattern of My Life".
