  1. Oh bless him, he looks incredibly moved ❤️

  2. Magnifique interprétation

  3. Omg, so touching !
    It seems like she’s stirred up some old feelings.. could it be … ?

  4. It’s very interesting, she’s sorta become the Scottish Nina Simone. Even her piano playing has become much more expressive and inventive as she’s gotten older.

  5. Full of sentiment (as always), but I find the interpretation a bit unbalanced, there are parts that are just too loud, whereas other, lower parts, are just perfect and where the emotion is all there. Do you know how I feel? ; )
    A record with her ever-favourite songs at the piano would be awesome.

  6. I agree 🙂

  7. For a second, I thought she was going to go into Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata. Perhaps it was the inspiration for her arrangement of Sting’s song.

  8. Oh my God, that was beautiful. Thank you for sharing, Steve!

  9. Loved it. Thanks for sharing

  10. I am a long standing fan of Annie Lennox, she’s the best . Especially love her Christmas Cornicopia,

  11. My two beloved artists together. This is a so emotional performance. Thanks for sharing Steve! <3

  12. I love the fact that it’s the Polar Music award, Polar being ABBA’S label, with Universal Music now owning Polar and Annie being part of the Universal Music family too.. serendipity I believe is the right turn of phrase.. 🙂
