Looks like Annie Lennox, who was once named one of Rolling Stone’s 100 Greatest Singers Of All Time, is getting her very own sweet dream come true. The Scottish crooner and other half of the Eurtythmics was honored by Queen Elizabeth II for her dedication to charity work.

The list is long when it comes to what Lennox is involved with, but highlighted at the ceremony was her work with charities fighting AIDS and poverty in Africa. Nonetheless I just to give you an idea of how worthy the singer really is, because she has also worked to promote the reduction of carbon footprints, save community gardens, lobby for climate change initiatives, and host concerts in the name of peace.

A well rounded slice of charity pie if you ask me!

As a result of Lennox’s admirable efforts it seems only fitting that she receive a title worthy of all her hard work. The Queen dubbed her Officer of the Order of the British Empire, or OBE, for her work as an ambassador for Oxfam and founder of the SING campaign, which aims to help women and children living with HIV.

The 56-year-old said of the Buckingham Palace ceremony that, “As somewhat of a renegade, it either means I’ve done something terribly right— or they’ve done something terribly wrong.”

We’re leaning towards the terribly right column.
