Annie Lennox was born on December, 25 1954. Grown in Aberdeen, Scotland, she used to play music as a child, learned how to play both the piano and flute. In her late teens, she won a scholarship to London's Royal Academy of Music, but she dropped out the school before the graduation. In the late '70s, she met guitarist Dave Stewart who asked Lennox to join a new band he was forming. The band was named The Tourists, and they released three albums between 1979 and 1980. While Lennox was singing with The Tourists she achieved her most notable fame as the alto. By 1980 Lennox and Stewart had left the band to begin electronic pop duo Eurythmics. Early in Eurythmics' career, she was known for her androgyny, wearing suits and once impersonating Elvis Presley. The duo released a long line of excellent pop - singles in the 1980s: Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), Here Comes the Rain Again, Who's That Girl?, 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, and others.
Though Eurythmics never officially disbanded, Lennox made a fairly clear break with Stewart in 1990, and began a long and equally successful solo career. Annie's solo debut album, Diva, was a doubtless commercial and critical success. The result was boosted by Diva's singles (including Why and Walking on Broken Glass), numerous awards, and Love Song for a Vampire, a soundtrack cut for Francis Ford Coppola's 1992 movie Bram Stocker's Dracula. Her next release of 1995 Medusa was an album of cover songs originally performed by such artists as Bob Marley and The Clash. The single No More I Love You's" received the 1995 Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. For the Diana, Princess of Wales tribute album she re-recorded the Eurythmics' track Angel in 1997. After that the relations with Dave Stewart were restored and the fans of Eurythmics have got the possibility to enjoy their new album Peace in 1999 and Eurythmics' hits album Ultimate Collection in 2005.
A full eight years after Medusa was released Lennox's third solo album Bare, which was accompanied by her first ever solo tour which played venues around the world. After another break, Annie released Songs of Mass Destructions in September 2007. Once again, the singer’s vocals were the best merit of her songs. Together with interesting lyrics and qualitative music, they formed a perfect release for each pop-music lover. 2009 saw the singer enlarge her discography with a new release. It was a compilation of her best songs, The Annie Lennox Collection. The record gathered the highlights of the artist’s glorious career. The traditionally strong album A Christmas Cornucopia devoted to Christmas saw the light in 2010. Such wonderful songs as The First Noël, Silent Night and many others create an amazing holiday atmosphere and a splendid mood. It was not a surprise that A Christmas Cornucopia attracted attention of Lennox old fans and all the lovers of sincere music in no time.
