DUBAI: Scottish singer-songwriter and political activist Annie Lennox called for a ceasefire in Gaza at the end of her performance at Sunday night’s Grammy Awards.

Lennox paid tribute to the late Sinéad O’Connor – who converted to Islam and changed her name to Shuhada’ Sadaqat in 2018 – during a lengthy in memoriam segment, in which she covered the late musician’s signature song, “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

At the end of the performance, Lennox lifted her left hand and said, “Artists for ceasefire, peace in the world.”
