It takes more than a crying child to stop Bono singing.

The U2 frontman was gearing up for a very intimate performance of U2's hit One at a Paris restaurant with the rest of the band when he was confronted by a little girl who was crying.

The dad of four picked the toddler up and held her through his performance and she appeared to stop crying.

The band was in Refettorio Paris and chef Massino Bottura posted the video of the performance to Instagram, thanking U2 for supporting the restaurant and the Food for Soul project.

Food for Soul is a non-profit organisation founded by Bottura and Lara Gilmore to empower communities to fight food waste through social inclusion.

Bono's voice appears to be back to full throttle after Bono was forced to call a halt to their Berlin gig two weeks ago after four songs when he lost his voice.

However, in a statement issued by the singer last night, he assured fans that the show would go on.

"I've seen a great doctor and with his care I'll be back to full voice for the rest of the tour.

"So happy and relieved that anything serious has been ruled out.

"My relief is tempered by the knowledge that the Berlin audience were so inconvenienced," he said in a statement.

"There was an amazing atmosphere in the house, it was going to be one of those unforgettable nights but not for this reason… We can't wait to get back there on November 13th."

The last date on their Experience + Innocence tour was due to be Dublin on November 10 but they will now finish in Berlin in the 13th.
