Annie Lennox checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@annielennox) on Thursday (October 21), talking about her show the prior night at London’s Roundhouse. The Voicestorm concert was presented by the HIV charity “Body & Soul” in memory of the late Dame Anita Roddick. Annie writes:
I had a lovely time at the Roundhouse last night. There was a wonderful atmosphere, with a sense of “connectivity” in the house, as it were. Each time I perform it’s like something new. I try to create a combination of songs to affect and compliment the occasion. But it’s always like a free fall for me, because I don’t don’t do it on a regular basis, so it’s always a little edgy and unpredictable from my side. I don’t go around thinking that I’m anything other than an ordinary human being, and it’s very important for me to preserve that notion, for my own sanity, otherwise I might get all kinds of misguided notions in my head, which would serve me rather poorly, as it has many others who’ve gone before.
