Annie Lennox, OBE is a Scottish singer, songwriter, political activist and philanthropist. After achieving moderate success in the late 1970s as part of the new wave band The Tourists, she and fellow musician David A. Stewart went on to achieve major international success in the 1980s as Eurythmics. With a total of eight Brit Awards, including Best British Female Artist six times, Lennox has won more than any other female artist. She has also been named the “Brits Champion of Champions”.[1]Lennox embarked on a solo career in 1992 with her debut album, Diva, which produced several hit singles including “Why” and “Walking on Broken Glass“. To date, she has released six solo studio albums and a compilation album,The Annie Lennox Collection (2009). Aside from her eight Brit Awards, she has also collected four Grammy Awards and an MTV Video Music Award. In 2002, Lennox received a Billboard Century Award; the highest accolade from Billboard Magazine.[2] In 2004, she won both the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Into the West“, written for the soundtrack to the feature film The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

In addition to her career as a musician, Lennox is also a political and social activist, notable for raising money and awareness for HIV/ AIDS as it affects women and children in Africa. In 2011, Lennox was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II for her “tireless charity campaigns and championing of humanitarian causes”. On 4 June 2012 she performed at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert in front of Buck Palace. Lennox performed the song “Little Bird” during the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony in London on 12 August 2012.

Marriage

Annie Lennox was born the daughter of Dorothy (née Ferguson) and Thomas Allison Lennox. Lennox has been married three times.

Her first marriage, 1984 to 1985, was to German Hare Krishna devotee Radha Raman pictured below with Annie..

On 2nd February 1984, the Eurythmics appeared in Stuttgart, Germany. After the concert was a fan that had managed to get backstage. Instead of being nasty, he was looking forward Annie with something vegetarian he had made. Annie was so thrilled that she employee man as his personal chef. The German man was Radha Raman. He was a supporter of the Indian religion Hare Krishna, and in addition to cooking for Annie, he used the time to talk about his religion. After three weeks they were lovers. They then went together to a small Swiss mountain town, where Krisha followers had built a temple.

“Radha has changed my life. He Taught me how to be happy. Before we met, I was terribly confused about what I wanted.”      Annie Lennox

Annie & Radha seperated after only being married. for one year. She paid the 1 million pound blackmail fee he demanded in return for not publishing private pictures on them together.

She then went on to date dancer Billy Poveda who was in the ‘Would I Lie To You’ video. The relationship was short lived. Found here

 

 

It had been a distinctly odd pairing from the very first—she, a statuesque postpunk rocker with a shock of bright orange (lately blond) hair, and he a squat, retiring German who had embraced the Hare Krishna movement. So when the Eurythmics’ Annie Lennox, 30, announced three weeks ago that after 14 months of marriage she had separated from Radha Raman, 32, it came as no great surprise. Even Lennox allowed that it might have been a mismatch: “Perhaps I was a bit impetuous.”

The Scottish-born singer had met Raman early last year, when the Eurythmics were a month into a grueling world tour. A high-strung sort who has admitted to bouts of desperate loneliness, Lennox was plagued by throat problems and ill at ease with her role as a rock star. Raman and a group of Krishnas prepared a vegetarian spread for the group after a concert in West Germany, and she was “immensely grateful” when he concocted a homeopathic medicine for her throat. After that the Krishnas traveled with the band throughout Europe, and the arresting androgyne and her spiritual sidekick were soon spending hours together, Annie learning some of the Krishna chants and adopting the group’s rigid vegetarian diet.

After the two wed in a spur-of-the-moment ceremony in New York, Lennox bought a house near Lucerne and vowed to keep the relationship under wraps. “My life is so public, I must keep him private,” she declared. She appeared at parties, awards ceremonies and music business bashes without him, and he was seldom seen at the Eurythmics’ studio in North London. The singer never took him to Aberdeen to meet her blue-collar parents, and he became an increasingly forlorn background figure in her hectic life. Friends say he found it more and more difficult to maintain his Krishna discipline, and that by the time the two separated he had reportedly lapsed to the point of taking an occasional drink.

Lennox seems to have emerged from the split relatively unscathed. With a new Eurythmics LP (Be Yourself Tonight) in the stores, she is set to star in several videos and is about to take on her first feature film role—a small part in Revolution, a war saga starring Al Pacino. By her own account, she jettisoned the Krishnas when she shed Raman; at a London party for the new LP, Annie declared, “I’m having a sabbatical from all religious forms.”


1988 to 2000, she was married to Israeli film and record producer Uri Fruchtmann. The couple have two daughters, Lola and Tali (pictured below)

Tali has posted what appears to be a tribute to Ian on Instagram, sharing a photograph, alongside the caption:

“My heart is shattered. My best friend, my soul mate, my partner in crime & creativity, the LOVE & LIGHT of my life is no longer with me. All the love that has been sent to me is giving me the strength to get through this. I know that he is so so happy that I was safely rescued. Let us honor & celebrate this beautiful soul & keep following the light.”

Tali and Ian were kayaking together on Saturday morning when they got into difficulty on the New York river. Tali, the 22-year-old daughter of Annie Lennox, was rescued by passers-by, the Sheriff’s Office stated.

An AIDS charity boss allegedly leaves his wife and children to start a relationship with Annie Lennox.

Lennox has reportedly become romantically involved with a married AIDS charity boss. The Eurythmics star allegedly fell for South African gynecologist Dr Mitch Besser after they met through his charity two years ago. The practitioner has since left the Cape Town home he shared with his wife Debra and their two teenage sons in order to pursue a romance with Lennox, although The Sun claims that their marriage had come to an end before the lovers first met.

 

On 15 Sept 2012, Lennox married South African gynaecologist Dr. Mitch Besser, in London in a private ceremony.

Robin Smalley

 

07/23/2012 10:47 am ET | Updated Jul 23, 2012

A decade ago, Robin Smalley was enjoying the best of times. In her early 40s, the Emmy award-winning producer and director had abandoned the grueling hours and stress of doing live television to run a media nonprofit in Los Angeles. Though Smalley took a sizeable pay cut, the new career was more fulfilling and gave her more time with her spouse and two small daughters.

Then things began to unravel.

First, Smalley’s stepfather died. Then she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Smalley plowed ahead, never missing a day of work as she underwent 12 weeks of radiation. Just as she finished treatment, her mother died unexpectedly.

Seeing her through it all –- the job change, the illness, the sorrowful deaths –- was her best friend and bedrock, Karen Besser. They met as college roommates at Tufts University. “She couldn’t have been more of a sister to me,” Smalley said. “She would say, ‘I have three brothers, can’t you just marry one of them?’”

In January 2004, Besser went into the hospital for minor orthoscopic surgery and lapsed into a coma. Smalley immediately flew out to Illinois to be with her friend.

Besser died on Valentine’s Day. “I really went into emotional tailspin,” Smalley said. “I’d always been positive, I thoroughly believe in counting your blessings, but I had had a difficult couple of years. When she died it threw me completely.”

Karen Besser’s brother, Dr. Mitchell Besser, was an OB-GYN who worked with poor women in South Africa. During the weeks he and Smalley kept vigil at his sister’s bedside, he told Smalley about a program he had started in 2001 to train new mothers to become mentors to other moms with HIV. Through counseling and education, the mentor mothers work to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the AIDS virus. (With access to medication, transmission through pregnancy, labor or breastfeeding is 100 percent preventable.)

“In resource-rich countries … 98 percent of babies are born HIV-negative,” Besser noted in a TED Talk. “Yet, in resource-poor countries, in the absence of tests and treatment, 40 percent of children are infected.” In 2009, an estimated 370,000 children contracted HIV during the perinatal and breastfeeding period, according to a UNAIDS Global Report.

Besser invited Smalley to come to Cape Town and check out his work at Groote Schuur Hospital. “The first day I went on rounds with him and started meeting incredible women who were HIV-positive and pregnant, and had the most courageous spirit,” Smalley said. “It was like a bucket of cold water. I snapped out of my misery and said to my husband, ‘We have to move to Capetown.’ We literally packed up the kids and the dogs, rented out our house and moved five weeks later.”

The first year, Besser and Smalley went from country to country knocking on the doors of health ministries, and flying to New York and Washington D.C. to garner support for the organization, mothers2mothers (m2m). “That’s where my TV background helped –- I knew how to tell a story,” Smalley said. “People started believing in us and investing, and we were able to hire people.” Celebrities such as P. Diddy, Beyonce, David Beckham and Elton John visited the program and donated funds.

In Smalley’s first year, with a $70,000 budget, m2m expanded to 31 sites in South Africa. In July 2005, First Lady Laura Bush visited m2m in Cape Town, praising the women there for “stripping away the stigma” of the disease and helping to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the AIDS virus. In March 2006, she hosted Smalley and a gathering of the m2m mentor mothers at the White House.

“I went from being as miserable as I had ever been in my life after Karen died to being the happiest I’d ever been in my life,” said Smalley. In September 2005, she moved back to Los Angeles to become m2m international director, and Gene Falk, a former Showtime executive and AIDS activist, became executive director. In June 2007, the Financial Times of London rated m2m one of the top 100 non-governmental organizations in the world for public-private partnership.

“Our mothers are front and center, really showing that the women of Africa are powerful and extraordinary, and through women we can eliminate pediatric AIDS,” said Smalley, who attended the International AIDS Conference in Washington D.C. on July 22 with some of the m2m mothers.

Today, m2m has 600 sites in seven countries, and employs 1,600 people, including 1,500 mothers with HIV. Every day m2m makes inroads in the fight against AIDS, offers life-sustaining care and helps people lead more productive lives. But Smalley says she’s the one who found salvation.

“I always thank Mitch for bringing me into this, because it did save my life,” she said. “I learned from this experience that when you are unutterably sad, the [best] thing you can do is do something for someone else.

“I think Karen is smiling.”

Laura Bush to open White House summit on malaria

Since her Cape Town visit 17 months ago, the First Lady has become a public advocate for the administration’s $15 billion, five-year plan to battle AIDS internationally, a program President Bush launched in 2003.

Thursday, she extends her advocacy to the malaria summit, called to set an agenda for fighting the disease and to get more Americans interested in battling the deadly infection.

President Bush will attend the summit as the main attraction, but it’s clear that Mrs. Bush and her office have taken the lead in organizing the meeting.

Annie Lennox has come a long way since fronting the Grammy Award-winning Eurythmics in the 1980s. Since then she has become a successful solo artist, sold more than 80 million records, and become renowned for her charity work with organizations such as Amnesty International, Greenpeace, and Nelson Mandela’s 46664 Foundation. The singer, who received the British Red Cross Services to Humanity Award in 2008, dedicates much of her time to raising awareness of the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Africa.

Lennox released a special fundraising single called Sing, which featured a 23-member choir of female celebrities, including Madonna, Faith Hill, Pink, and many more. Proceeds from the single went to the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), an organization that that provides much needed support in the continent’s struggle against the deadly virus.

Lennox believes everybody can do something to help those affected by AIDS in Africa. She is especially supportive of what she calls “Laptop Activism”, and runs many of her charity initiatives through the internet.

The singer also took part in Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday concert in London, where she urged people to join in the struggle to help the 15 million children orphaned by the disease in Africa.

Annie Lennox has supported the following 43 charities:
