"Songs of Mass Destruction":For the album, Lennox has gathered together twenty-three female artists for a collaboration on the song "Sing".

The song is the product of Annie’s involvement with Nelson Mandela’s 46664 and Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) – organizations fighting for human rights, education and health care for people affected by the HIV AIDS virus. Included among the group are TAC activist members own vocal group known as "The Generics", whose CD of music inspired Annie to make "Sing".

18 stops, including London, San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, Boulder, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Washington, D.C., Nashville, Atlanta, Miami, New York City (two dates), Philadelphia, and Boston. The venues generally are at medium-size theatres, except in New York, where one of the dates is a United Nations fundraiser at Wall Street restaurant Cipriani.

Enjoy your Sunday!

I love Annie and I can't wait for this new album, but I have to admit I don't like this song. I really can only hear Annie and a tiny bit of Madonna actually singing anything. Great benefit for charity, but the song has no edge and sounds like throw away pop crap. I expected a bit more from Annie. Luckily, the rest of her new album rocks.

Awww, Collin, I love this song--pop-ish or no....and hey!isn't the fact that she managed to get ALL THESE WOMEN together a cool deal? I can hear several different voices, though you are not alone in mentioning being able to discern only a few in the mix--several others who Blog have said what you just said.
I really like it, though-- I guess this one is what we of a certain age might say: "... has a good beat, and I can dance to it, Dick" (for you youngsters,that is an American Bandstand reference)
