Annie Lennox receives the Icon Award at Stylist’s Remarkable Women Awards. The audience were so inspired by her acceptance speech that Stylist have written an article about it:
“Annie Lennox is absolutely an icon. And, at Stylist’s Remarkable Women Awards 2019, Keeley Hawes – aka Julia Montague from BBC One’s Bodyguard – stepped up to present the musician and activist with the prestigious Icon Award.
Noting that Lennox won a place at the Royal Academy of Music in London in the early Seventies and, as one half of The Eurythmics, became one of the most loved British artists around the world, Hawes went on to inform the star-studded audience at London’s Rosewood Hotel that “it’s not Lennox’s music that makes her our winner tonight… although it is worthy of such an honour.”
Rather, “it is the way that she has used her status and platform to help so many other people, especially women,” continued Hawes.”
