IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: BONO - MUSICIAN/ACTIVIST

Rate this Entry

Irish-born rocker Paul David Hewson, aka Bono, is the well-known lead singer of U2. Bono splits his time between his native Ireland, the South of France and New York City. And he's doing a lot more than recording and performing. He's now known almost as well for his humanitarian work on behalf of a variety of causes including many related to relief in Africa.



While some celebrities have been criticized with trying to identify with causes for publicity reasons, few put Bono in to that category. He is now considered a leading public figure on on aid issues and his influence is reflected in Time Magazine listing him in their 2006 list of the most influential people in the world and and as their Person of the Year in 2005. He's also garnered nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize (a nice complement to his Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy nominations).



Bono's contribution to this country was recently recognized by the US Constitution Center which granted him their Philadelphia Liberty Medal for his work to end world poverty and hunger.
