Biography

Aberdeen, United Kingdom (1954 – present)

Annie Lennox is an Oscar, Brit and Grammy award-winning pop musician and vocalist. She was born on December 25, 1954 in Aberdeen, Scotland.

After three years as lead singer of The Tourists, Lennox achieved her most notable fame as the alto, soul-tinged lead singer of the 1980s rock duo Eurythmics with British musician Dave Stewart. Early in the Eurythmics’ career, she was known for her androgyny, wearing suits and once impersonating Elvis. Journalists often referred to her as “the white Grace Jones”.

Her 1992 album Diva won critical praise and sold well, but her profile decreased for a period due to her desire to raise her two children outside of the media’s glare, although she continued to be a major figure in popular music. Medusa - an album of covers in which Lennox tackled songs by everyone from Bob Marley to The Clash - was released three years after Diva, and also sold well. In 1997 she re-recorded the Eurythmics track “Angel” for the Diana, Princess of Wales tribute album. In 1998 - following the death of a mutual friend (former The Tourists leader singer/songwriter Peet Coombes) - she re-established contact with Dave Stewart and by 1999, Eurythmics had reformed for the album Peace. In 2003 she released her third solo album, Bare.

In 2003, Lennox was chosen to record “Into the West” for the soundtrack of The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. This song won an Academy Award for Best Song in 2003.

    "Love her music, specially with Eurythmics. When I listen to her, I just ignore she is a bloody antisemite. " Such a stupid comment....she's not an anti semite. Israelis always love to use that word to gag anyone who speaks critically of Isreal. Checked your profile....and what a surprise, you're from Israel. [2]

    @HaHaHaYoureDead, ее сольное творчество даже круче, чем в составе Eurythmics, я считаю

    Diva - очень хорошая поп-запись, вообще ее сольное творчество не уступает в интересе собсна eurythmics, я считаю

    I saw her singing 'The Fool on the Hill' on the Beatles tribute. I just can't tell you how amazing and beautiful her voice is!
