Presented with our friends at Global Citizen. To take action on the issues discussed in this episode head to GlobalCitizen.org/CryPower.

Joining Hozier for the first episode of Cry Power is Annie Lennox - the renowned singer songwriter, campaigner and activist, who along with countless hit records has received many prestigious awards, including eight BRIT Awards, a Golden Globe and four Grammys. She is the first woman to be named a Fellow of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.

In 2011, she was awarded an OBE for her contribution towards combating HIV/AIDS as it affects women and children in Africa. Several years ago, she founded ‘The Circle’, an organisation working to connect and inspire women to act and change the injustices and challenges faced by the most disempowered women and girls around the globe. 

In their conversation, the two discuss Lennox’s family history of activism, Eurythmics’ contribution to Rock Against Racism and activism against apartheid in South Africa, to the founding of NGO The Circle and the current state of protest and activism.
