Annie Lennox: Nostalgia Live in Concert
Throughout her four-decade career, music superstar Annie Lennox has defied categorization, diving into blues, soul, folk and pop to create songs that captivate and transcend boundaries. In her latest album, Nostalgia, Lennox reveals yet another dimension to her formidable talent. Although jazz is not the genre for which she is best known, she could no longer resist the magnetic pull of some of the most memorable melodies and lyrics from the American Songbook - songs like "Summertime," "Georgia on My Mind," "You Belong to Me," "I Cover the Waterfront" and "God Bless the Child." Lennox's sublime interpretations bring a hypnotic intimacy to these timeless classics.

Celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2013, Rodgers & Hammerstein's landmark musical "Oklahoma!" returns to GREAT PERFORMANCES for a special commemorative encore telecast.
