Joining Hozier for the second episode of the podcast is Bono. The lead singer of Irish rock band U2. Acknowledged as one of the best live acts in the world, U2 have sold over 157 million albums and won numerous awards, including 22 Grammys.
Bono is also a well-known activist in the fight against AIDS and extreme poverty in Africa and the cofounder of sister organizations ONE and (RED).
ONE is a global movement campaigning to end extreme poverty and preventable disease so that everyone, everywhere can lead a life of dignity and opportunity. As part of his work with ONE, Bono has lobbied heads of state and government, and members of legislatures all around the world. This lobbying combined with the work of ONE’s grassroots membership has helped to ensure the passage and funding of government policies and programs that have helped to save tens of millions of lives over the past 10 years.
