Annie Lennox sings out against HIV
Annie Lennox has released a single titled SING. SING is the second single from her new album Songs of Mass Destruction. It is aimed at raising international awareness of the impact of HIV/AIDS in South Africa, particularly the epidemic’s toll on women and children, and will be accompanied by a media and web campaign to encourage people to actively get involved in reversing the course of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Featuring the vocal talents of 23 major female artists, including Angelique Kidjo, Madonna, Melissa Etherdige, Dido, Pink, Shakira, Fergie and Céline Dion, proceeds from the SING single will be donated to TAC. Also featured on the single are the members of TAC’s choir The Generics, whose 2001 song on preventing mother-to-child transmission, Jikelele, provides the outro to SING.
