From Bono to Bono, U2 accept award
BONO picked up another gong over the weekend
The U2 star spoke passionately about artist activism and the fight against AIDS as he and The Edge accepted the Sonny Bono Visionary Award from US Congresswoman and wife of the late Sonny Bono, Mary Bono (second left), for U2's work on the film, 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom', at this year's first glitzy Hollywood gala -- the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
He and The Edge are pictured above on stage with actors from the film Naomie Harris and Idris Elba. Also at the gala event was actor Colin Farrell.
