With The following description “About”: The SING Campaign:

“Founded by artist and activist Annie Lennox, the SING Campaign was established as a voice for HIV/AIDS affected women and children in Africa. After hearing Nelson Mandela (http://www.looktothestars.org/celebrity/543-nelson-mandela) describe the African HIV pandemic as a genocide, with women and children becoming the frontline victims, Annie Lennox set out to try and do something about it.
The singer launched the SING Campaign in 2007 when she released a special fundraising single called Sing which featured a 23-member choir of female celebrities including Madonna, Fergie, Celine Dion and many more. Proceeds from the single went to the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC), http://www.looktothestars.org/charity/669-treatment-action-campaign, an organisation providing much needed support in the continent’s struggle against the deadly virus.
The money raised by the SING Campaign helps prevent the spread of HIV in South Africa and also supports those currently living with HIV. In the words of Nelson Mandela: ”Let us use the universal language of music, to sing out our message around the world.”
