As previously mentioned at Ultimate Eurythmics and at The House Of Me, Annie Lennox will later today take the stage to discuss the sing campaign. In the conference programme, Annie is introduced as “The most successful female British pop musician in history, Annie Lennox has now committed herself to raising awareness of, and supporting actions against, the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa.”
Annie will be appearing in Session 2: Human Systems, Tues Jul 13, 2010 4:45 – 6:30 and also Wed Jul 14, 2010 Session 5: Healthier Together 2:30 – 4:15
You will be able to follow proceedings today on the official TED Blogsite, so no doubt we will get to see and hear Annie talking about the sing campaign to a highly influential group of people.
In other TED related news, Annie will be performing to delegates at the Oxford Playhouse this afternoon, musician Thomas Dolby blogged yesterday that he had seen Annie in rehersals, this is what he had to say:
I’m at TEDGlobal 2011 in Oxford which starts tomorrow. I just witnessed an awesome Annie Lennox soundcheck in the intimacy of the Playhouse Theatre, where she will be performing solo with piano tomorrow afternoon. She ripped through a selection of recent material as well as a few classic hits. For my part I’ll be playing the ‘Amerikana’ EP in its entirety, joined by pretty much the same band as played at Maverick last week, with the substitution of Rachelle Garniez in place of BJ Cole.
