Annie Lennox (born 25 December 1954) is a Scottish-born British musician, vocalist and Academy Award-winning songwriter. She is both a solo artist and the lead singer of the musical duo Eurythmics, hailed as "The Greatest White Soul Singer Alive" by members of the rock industry on the VH1 show 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll in 1999. Rolling Stone magazine also named her as one of their 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. Both as a solo artist and with Eurythmics, Lennox has sold over 80 million records. Lennox is also a political and social activist, leading such events as a pro-Palestinian rally in London January 3, 2009; she has also objected to the unauthorised use of her song I Saved the World Today, in an election broadcast for Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. Her vocal range is contralto. "Love Is a Stranger" is Eurythmics' fifth single, and like its predecessors, was initially a commercial flop, although it later became a worldwide hit when it re-entered the chart following their commercial breakthrough with "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)".
