Bono To Receive Humanitarian Honor
Rocker Bono is to be honored for his humanitarian work at a prestigious ceremony in Atlanta, Georgia next year. The U2 frontman will be presented with the accolade at the 2004 King Center Salute To Greatness Awards on January 17, at a dinner hosted by the family of assassinated civil rights leader Martin Luther King. King's widow Coretta Scott King told reporters that Bono's charity work for the victims of AIDS in Africa and his involvement in the Third World debt relief campaign marked him out among his peers. She enthuses, "We are fortunate this year to honor Bono for exemplifying many of the qualities that my husband, Martin, indicated were imperative to moving our society into the beloved community of which he so often spoke. He has focused mass public attention on the world's poorest continent and lobbied politicians around the globe to take action."
