Annie Lennox “Sing”
British soul singer Annie Lennox contributed a stunning rendition of “Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye” on 1990’s Red Hot + Blue album, but her activism around HIV/AIDS didn’t end there. The Eurythmics front woman, a UNAIDS Goodwill Ambassador, released “Sing” off of her fourth solo album Songs of Mass Destruction in 2007. The track featured 23 prominent female artists including Madonna, Fergie, P!nk, Gladys Knight, k.d. Lang and Faith Hill. And proceeds from the single went to raise awareness and treatment for women and children  HIV/AIDS. The song also became the rallying cry for Lennox’s Sing Campaign, her ongoing effort to continually shine a light on disease.
