In1979, Annie and Dave Stewart formed the duo band called the Eurythmics. They went on to sell over 75 million albums, and achieved over 20 international hits across the world. Annie’s solo album, “Songs Of Mass Destruction” featured “SING” which helped draw attention to the HIV AIDS pandemic, especially focusing on the country of South Africa, where women and children are worst affected.
“After personally witnessing Nelson Mandela describing the African HIV AIDS pandemic as a genocide, with women and children being the frontline victims, I set out to try and do something.” – Annie Lennox.
The SING campaign continues to raise funds and awareness in order to contribute to support and change. The money raised through SING helps prevent the spread of HIV in South Africa in different ways, most importantly through treatment literacy programs at a direct grass roots level. SING has already reached out to thousands of people.
