Huffington Post Live Review
From: Popservations - December 1, 2011
As today is World AIDS Day, I wanted to shine a light on one of the music world’s most tireless advocates for those affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, Annie Lennox.
Long dedicated to humanitarian causes (with Eurythmics partner Dave Stewart, she supported Amnesty International and Greenpeace), Lennox was invited in 2003 to perform at an AIDS charity concert hosted by former South African president Nelson Mandela. Hearing him talk about the millions who’d died there from the disease, and particularly jolted by Mandela’s labeling the loss as a genocide, Lennox was inspired to take personal action.
Your notes to me were touching, incredible. It was extremely difficult to choose. So, I ended up selecting three letters, and gave you all of my tickets to the show!
Congratulations Tina, Judy and Amanda (and accompanying friends.) I hope you have a wonderful time at the concert. To everyone else, thank you profoundly for sharing your thoughts, your support, your love. I know times are hard and the economy is horrible. We do have music to help us through, and by God, we will get through. I sincerely hope to see you all very soon!
