Annie Lennox (born 25 December 1954) is an Oscar, Brit, Grammy and Golden Globe award-winning British rock musician and vocalist. She is both a solo artist and the lead singer of the duo Eurythmics.

Life and career

Ann Lennox was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. She attended Aberdeen High School for Girls (now Harlaw Academy). She was educated as a classical musician and studied the flute at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

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 pop duo Eurythmics with British musician David A. Stewart. Early in Eurythmics' career, she was known for her androgyny, wearing suits and once impersonating Elvis Presley. Many journalists often referred to her as "the white Grace Jones". The duo released a long line of classic singles in the 1980s: "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)", "Here Comes the Rain Again", "Would I Lie to You?", "There Must Be an Angel (Playing with My Heart)", "Missionary Man", "You Have Placed a Chill in My Heart", "Don't Ask Me Why", among others. Though Eurythmics never officially disbanded, Lennox made a fairly clear break with Stewart in 1990, and began her long and equally successful solo career.

From the beginning, Lennox has experimented with her image as an artist and as a woman. She matured as a public figure in the late 20th Century, just as MTV and the medium of video were maturing as the obvious vehicles for selling contemporary popular music, and has used image astutely, both as a means of interpreting and marketing her music. Like her contemporary Madonna, Lennox's willingness to experiment with and subvert representations of gender and sexuality has earned her the respect of many women and something of the status of a gay icon.

Annie Lennox has also amassed a large fortune, said to be worth an estimated
