Singer ANNIE LENNOX is supporting a campaign by UK charity Oxfam to sign up a million people in the fight against global poverty.

The former EURYTHMICS star has lent her voice to a TV commercial in which she invites people to phone, email or text in their support for the cause.

The Lennox advertisement aired on British TV network Channel 4 last night (27DEC05), and follows hot on the heels of the Make Poverty History campaign earlier in the year (05).

Oxfam's JUDITH ROBERTSON says, "This has been an incredible year and shows us what we can do when people work together for change." (GES/WNTRE/SC)
