Annie Lennox: Nostalgia Live in Concert

 

Throughout her four-decade career, music superstar Annie Lennox has defied categorization, diving into blues, soul, folk and pop to create songs that captivate and transcend boundaries. On her latest album, Nostalgia, Lennox reveals yet another dimension to her formidable talent. Although jazz is not the genre for which she is known, she couldn’t resist the magnetic pull of some of the most memorable melodies and lyrics from the Great American Songbook – songs like “Summertime,” “Georgia on My Mind,” “You Belong to Me,” “I Cover the Waterfront” and “God Bless the Child.”
