Role in Band

Bono uses his role as a band member in U2 to further awareness of the causes he supports. Starting out as a potential guitarist for the band, Bono eventually became the sweet-sounding vocalist for U2. While the band as a whole greatly supports the activist causes they participate in, Bono is the leading force behind such activities. Through writing effective lyrics and urging the group to perform at charity concerts such as Live Aid 20, Bono has been the catalyst behind their humanitarian agenda.

As U2's front-man, Bono often leads the band in the music they play, the charities they're involved with, and the products they endorse. Bono makes sure that the band stays in the right light in order to receive the credit it needs and to support and influence those who are fighting for a better future.
