I still love Annie Lennox.
Glad to see her being recognized.
LENNOX HONOURED BY SCOTTISH ACADEMY
Former EURYTHMICS star ANNIE LENNOX has been hailed as an inspiration to music students after being named as the Royal Scottish Academy Of Music And Drama's (RSAMD) latest honorary doctorate recipient.
The singer, who will be joined by MRS BROWN actor BILLY CONNOLLY and Celtic music mogul IAN GREEN, will receive the award at the academy's summer graduation ceremony in Glasgow on 4 July (06).
RSAMD principal JOHN WALLACE praises Lennox for the impressive example she sets to those hoping to forge a career in music.
He says, "The academy is living through exciting times and the presence of Annie Lennox, Billy Connolly and Ian Green will send an important message of encouragement to our students from the peaks of the professional attainment - you can do it too."
Lennox can add the prize to an already impressive trophy cabinet, which boasts four Grammy Awards, seven Brit Awards, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award. 05/21/06 09:19 courtesy WENN
