Sweet dreams are made to come true for Annie Lennox.
The singer, 57, got married last Saturday in London, her spokesperson confirms. Lennox tied the knot with American Dr. Mitch Besser, also 57. The Harvard-educated gynecologist founded mothers2mothers, a private organization based in Africa that is dedicated to reducing mother-to-child HIV transmission.
The Mail Online reported that the private ceremony took place with 150 friends on a private boat on the Thames River.

Talk about Royal Command Performance.
A variety of music stars – from Paul McCartney, Elton John and Annie Lennox to Jessie J and Ed Sheeran – will sing in celebration on June 4 to mark Queen Elizabeth's 60 years on the throne, it was announced Tuesday.
Organizer Gary Barlow, of former boy band Take That, said Princes William and Harry both have recommended acts that have yet to be announced, and more names will be revealed over the coming weeks. Among them, it is believed: Adele.
Barlow added that he wants the event, which will take place on a special stage based around the Queen Victoria Memorial outside the gates in front of Buckingham Palace, to have the feel of a "street party." ABC will air exclusive highlights of the concert on June 5.

Alicia Keys raised nearly $700,000 hosting Thursday's night's first U.K. "Black Ball," a star-packed London fund-raiser to benefit children with AIDS in Africa.
"Our main goal is that for [one dollar] a day we can provide the medicine and care to keep children alive," said the R&B singer, 28, a co-founder of the Keep A Child Alive foundation.
Keys, who's touring Europe this summer, walked the red carpet with her brother Cole, and told reporters: "I'm definitely excited about bringing the one and only Annie Lennox on stage with me. It's going to be an exclusive, inspirational night."
