This was also Annie’s first time working with the legendary artist Dave Stewart.
Annie Is Also An Advocate for LGBTQ Community
Lennox has a sizable fan base among the LGBTQ+ community as a response to her longstanding advocacy for LGBT rights. Her “unique vocals and daring stage demeanor” have rendered Lennox a “long-time homosexual icon,” as reported by The Advocate.
