a celebration of the strength of women

I think all of us have a soundtrack to our lives – songs and tunes we carry with us and that instantly transport us back through time to people, places and occasions in our past that give us comfort and reassurance. For me, the one voice I’ve always listened to and loved is that of Annie Lennox; her vocals have been with me since I was a teenage fan of Eurythmics. Then came her solo albums. Several decades later, these are the tracks I’ll listen to above all others (as my own teenagers know all too well!).But my admiration of Annie is now based on far more than just her incredible voice.

‘i’m driven by a passion to contribute to global women’s rights’

Annie Lennox is a musical legend with a string of extraordinary accolades to her name, including eight Brit Awards (six for Best British Female – an unbeaten record to date), four Grammys, a Golden Globe, an Academy Award and, in 2011, she added an OBE to her list of achievements.The awards are in recognition of a career that has seen her sell over 83 million records, first as one half of Eurythmics and then in a solo career that continues to this day. Annie was made a Fellow of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors in 2015, the first female to receive the honour.Aside from all her musical achievements, Annie was inducted as Glasgow Caledonian University’s first female chancellor in 2017 and she has also received some 20…
