Annie Lennox, OBE (born December 25, 1954), is a Scottish recording artist. After achieving minor success in the band The Tourists in the late 1970s, Lennox went on to major international success in the 1980s as part of the duo Eurythmics, which she formed with former Tourists' member David A. Stewart. In the 1990s Lennox embarked on a solo career.
Between 1977 and 1980, Lennox was the lead singer of The Tourists (initially known as The Catch), a moderately successful British pop band and her first collaboration with Dave Stewart. During the time they were in The Tourists, Stewart and Lennox were involved in a relationship, though this had ended by the time they formed Eurythmics.
The total turn out for yesterday's historic vote was 84.5% with 55% voting No and 45% voting Yes. For those who must feel deeply disappointed I think that they must now commit to ensuring that the promises made for change are committed to and followed through.

Today will mark a watershed moment, not only for Scotland, but for the entire United Kingdom.Whichever way the citizens of Scotland cast their vote, the ramifications will be effectively long lasting.
As an individual in the (occasional ) public eye, I have frequently been asked to express my viewpoint on my country's independence over the last few years and I have tried to respond as honestly and authentically as I could, bearing in mind that I am no expert on politics, sociology, economics, history or sooth saying. I have clearly stated that I am "agnostic" in this matter, despite the fact that some publications have represented me on one particular side. Once the die is cast.. It will be what it will be.
As a Scot who has lived beyond the border for over two thirds of my lifetime, I have no right to vote, therefore my view is practically irrelevant. However – I would like to say this..
Whichever way you cast your vote, please think long term. A pro independence vote will be absolutely irreversible.. There will be no turning back. Absolutely no B plan.
You must therefore be fully convinced that all the promises will be guaranteed.. otherwise, you put your children's lives, your grandchildren's lives and their children's lives at risk.
Personally, I am deeply distrustful of politicians who offer utopian idylls, as I have found them to be flagrantly deceptive at every turn..
Be wise Scotia… The future is in your hands.
