Bono is the lead singer of the Irish rock band U2 and a well-known activist in the fight against AIDS and extreme poverty. He co-founded ONE, an advocacy organization with more than 3 million members that campaigns for policymakers to support effective programs that are saving lives and improving futures in the poorest parts of the world.

He also cofounded (RED), a private-sector initiative involving some of the world’s most iconic brands, which through the sale of (RED) products has channeled over $207 million to Global Fund programs fighting AIDS in Africa.

Bono has received numerous awards for his music and activism, including 22 Grammys, TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2005 (with Bill and Melinda Gates), an honorary British knighthood, and the Legion D’Honneur and Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from the French government.
