Africa Gives Back To Bono

Campaigning rockers U2 are being honoured by a group of African musicians who are releasing an album of the Irish band's songs.
The LP, In the Name of Love: Africa Celebrates U2, includes 12 renditions of U2 tracks performed with an African flavour, by some of the continent's up-and-coming performers.
Producers Shaun Amos and Paul Heck hope the disc will provide an introduction to African music for western fans.
Amos says, "Paul and I wanted to develop an easy entry point for the growing global community where they could get more involved and learn something deeper about Africa."
