I was watching Idol gives back last Wednesday. For those of you who are not familiar with this show, its a special episode on American Idol which is geared towards raising money for charities all around the world. Anyway, there were a lot of pop stars, actors, sports icons etc who participated in the show to help the cause. But one person stuck out among the crowd like a shining star with her genuine concern towards AIDS in Africa – none other than ANNIE LENNOX. Her performance left me spellbound and left me crying as it came from the bottom of her heart and her pain resonated with me. I wanted to share it with the rest of you as this is soulful music at its best. The song she sang is a cover of “Many Rivers to Cross” written by Jimmy Cliff in 1969.
Hats off to ANNIE LENNOX for a mind blowing performance!
